LEARNING AND TEACHING METHODS
Lectures, with examples, are used to convey basic information and concepts. Lectures are supplemented with tutorial problems, a virtual laboratory class, and several assignments (one of which includes a hands-on concrete technology laboratory class), all of which reinforce the student’s understanding of the core material. Concept design workshops are given in conjunction with experienced bridge and building design consultants from industry; they give the students the opportunity to test their acquired skills.
