This week-long course explores the many aspects within the field of Civil Engineering. Students will learn about topics such as construction management, structural design, wind engineering, transportation and materials testing through various hands-on projects. Students will build models of bridges and buildings, tour the Clemson wind tunnel, and see demonstrations of the firing missile cannon showcasing the connection between everyday weather (wind) and the structures we inhabit. There they will also see and learn about natural hazard research which is only conducted at a handful of universities in the United States. They will be introduced to the concept and applications of sustainability in order to understand how Civil Engineering affects human wellbeing and quality of life.
