Learn to design and build the physical and natural environment and infrastructure in which modern society depends, including roads, bridges, dams, clean energy, structural components of buildings  and alternative transportation.

Students will design house plans, learn computer aided design, build and test balsa wood bridges and other structures, study road and transportation design, survey outdoor environments, create topographic models, observe erosion tables, interact with an augmented reality sandbox and more. If you have any career interest in engineering or architecture, this course will give you the real-world experience needed to see if this is the right fit for you. Let’s get building.
