MAY TERM ABROAD: INTRODUCTION TO BRIDGE ENGINEERING

 

Roman bridges and aqueducts have endured as testaments to the engineering achievements and ingenuity of the Roman Empire. Steeped in history, engineering, art, architecture, and beauty, Rome provides a unique environment applicable to the Introduction of Bridge Engineering curriculum. Founded in 753 BC, Rome is an idyllic setting to experience architecture and engineering spanning centuries.

The CE 377K technical elective provides students a better understanding of bridge engineering, bridge systems, and their role in transportation infrastructure. Participants will visit both Roman-era and modern bridges, while learning the evolution and advancements of engineering and structural systems. Planned visits to bridge fabrication shops and construction sites will further establish the important relationships between the design process and construction infrastructure.
