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 MSU and Lake Michigan Rooms, MSU Union . Admission is free and open to the public.
CE 495 SENIOR DESIGN IN CIVIL & ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING
Michigan State University 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 S550 million cutting-edge research facility to advance understanding of rare nuclear isotopes and the evolution of the cosmos. In this semester’s exercise,teams developed preliminary plans for the following: elements of the proposed south highbay extension, an alternate configuration of the linac tunnels, managing stormwater runoff and sediment during construction, maintaining transportation services during and after construction, as well as an improved potable water supply for the University.
