CEE 411 | Railroad Project Design and Construction

This course provides a comprehensive, integrated understanding of the process of planning and designing a railroad-engineering project from concept through to operation. The class will focus on five elements of a railroad project: Economic analysis, Planning, Design, Construction, and Operation. Students will work in teams to identify, gather and analyze the necessary information, to plan and manage a new railroad construction project. There will be field trips to observe and participate in railroad track maintenance and construction activities and a visit to a major railroad construction project.

CEE 411 is typically offered in the classroom or online in the spring semester.
