Major: Civil Engineering
Year: Class of 2017 (Junior)
This presentation explores architecture through an engineering perspective. The history of structures, fundamental engineering concepts, and a structural analysis of modern buildings are all included. Using these understandings, a look into the future of architecture is possible.
Our aging bridges is a major problem that is costing the government millions of dollars. This presentation raises awareness about this issue and the current state of our bridges and buildings. Students will learn about the properties of concrete and how it deteriorates, causing damage to our infrastructure therefore posing a significant safety risk. They will be exposed to the engineering methods that are used to help keep our structures safe.
