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 Rooms 1538 and 3540 Engineering Building. Admission is free and open to the public.
CE 495 SENIOR DESIGN IN CIVIL & ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING
Michigan State University Student Apartment Complex Designs
Student-teams developed preliminary designs for elements of a 144-unit student apartment complex located east of campus near the Red Cedar River. Two configurations were considered: One would employ three buildings, each with a paved, uncovered, interior court yard that is used for parking; building height is limited to three stories above ground in order that wood frame construction can be employed. The second alternative would provide the same number of housing units in a more compact configuration that placed some parking within each building’s footprint; these buildings required at least four stories above ground which necessitates steel and/or concrete structures. Teams provided preliminary design for key structural elements of the buildings and their foundations; for road and intersection geometry, as well as; the pavement design; for an enhanced pedestrian and bike pathway connecting the development with Grand River and the MSU campus; and for improvements to the existing mitigation-wetland.
