If I have been able to see further, it was only because I stood on the shoulders of giants, Sir Isaac Newton............. If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it? Albert Einstein............A good scientist is a person with original ideas. A good engineer is a person who makes a design that works with as few original ideas as possible, Freeman Dyson............The joy of engineering is to find a straight line on a double logarithmic diagram, Thomas Koenig.............A great bridge is a great monument which should serve to make known the splendour and genius of a nation; one should not occupy oneself with efforts to perfect it architecturally, for taste is always susceptible to change, but to conserve always in its form and decoration the character of solidity which is proper. Jean Peronnet..............A theory may be so rich in descriptive possibilities that it can be made to fit any data. Phillip Johnson-Laird.............We shape our buildings, thereafter they shape us. Winston Churchill................

Grading Policy

20% Homework.

30%  Mid-Term Exam.

50% Final Exam.



Homework assignments help students absorb methodology and concepts taught in the course and prepare them for the project and exams.

 Consequently, timely preparation of homework is important.

Unless announced otherwise, each day late on homework is penalized by 10% of the grade of the homework.

Homework is not accepted more than a week late.
