Objectives of the Course

These are program outcomes that apply to this course selected from the Program Outcomes of the Civil & Environmental Engineering Department:
  • (e) An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems
  • (g) An ability to communicate effectively
  • (k) An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice
  • (o) An ability to apply knowledge of transportation engineering

These are course outcomes:

1 (o) An ability to apply to highway geometric design the knowledge that critical components of the traffic system – drivers, vehicles, roads and highways, physical environment, and traffic control devises – interact to form traffic streams.
2 (e) An ability to apply the concept of capacity and level of service to performance evaluation, design, and planning of freeways, two-lane two-way highways, urban streets and intersections.
3 (k) An ability to reason and use mathematical models for highway capacity and level of service estimation included in the Highway Capacity Manual.
4 (k) An ability to use the Highway Capacity Software for performance evaluation, designing, and planning of freeways, two-lane two-way highways, urban streets, and intersections.
5 (e) An ability to apply the concepts behind highway geometric design to the highway geometric design of a location assigned for the term project.
6 (k) An ability to use proper tables and figures in A Policy on Geometric Design of Highways and Streets in Geometric Design of Highways and Streets to assignment problems, exams, and a term project design.
7 (k) An ability to use Autodesk Civil 3D to design a highway and an intersection for the location assigned in the term project, including importing digital design data, triangulating the terrain data, creating profile, vertical and horizontal alignment, preparing cross section assembly, creating a corridor and an intersection, and determining earthwork
8 (g) An ability to prepare a technical report summarizing the tasks the team members have done in the design a highway and an intersection assigned for the term project
9 (g) An ability to prepare a presentation file summarizing the tasks the team members have done in the design a highway and an intersection assigned for the term project AND present it as a team
10 (o) An ability to use professionally technical terms pertaining to highway geometric design
