6 (k) An ability to use proper tables and figures in A Policy on Geometric Design of Highways and Streets in Geometric Design of Highways and Streets to assignment problems, exams, and a term project design.
Use of Autodesk Civil 3D for CAD-based Design
7 (k) An ability to use Autodesk Civil 3D to design a highway and an intersection for the location assigned in the term project, including importing digital design data, triangulating the terrain data, creating profile, designing vertical and horizontal alignments, preparing a cross section assembly, and creating a corridor and an intersection.
Writing a Technical Report
8 (g) An ability to prepare a technical report summarizing the tasks that the team members have done in the design of a highway and an intersection assigned for the term project.
Preparing a Technical Presentation
9 (g) An ability to prepare a presentation file summarizing the tasks the team members have done in the design a highway and an intersection assigned for the term project AND present it as a team.
