Each Civil and Environmental Engineering team is responsible for developing a design that addresses environmental, geotechnical, hydrological, pavement, transportation, and structural issues for the project. A student project manager coordinates each team. Design reports are judged by the faculty; progress reports and the oral presentations are judged by a board of practicing professionals.
Project presentations will be held in the MSU Room and Lake Michigan Room in the MSU Union. Admission is free and open to the public.
CE 495 SENIOR DESIGN IN CIVIL & ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING
Michigan State University’s Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (F-RIB)
Student-teams developed preliminary designs for elements of MSU’s Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (F-RIB) the $550 million cutting-edge research facility to advance understanding of
rare nuclear isotopes and the evolution of the cosmos. As envisioned in this planning exercise, construction of the facility would include deep excavation for the 1000 foot long linac tunnels, permanent
removal of Bogue St. between Shaw and Wilson, and construction of a stormwater wetland to reduce impacts of the urbanized campus on the Red Cedar River. Teams developed preliminary plans for the following civil engineering issues: temporary excavation shoring and utility bridging required to construct the linac tunnels: maintenance of campus vehicular and pedestrian traffic; post construction storm water management.
