  • This course is a basic engineering subject that must be
    understood by anyone concerned with the strength and physical performance of
    structures, whether those structures are man-made or natural. The subject
    matter includes such fundamental concepts as stresses and strains, deformations
    and displacements, elasticity and inelasticity, strain energy and load-carrying
    capacity. These concepts underlie the design and analysis of a huge variety of
    mechanical and structural systems.

  • This course provides general introduction to Transportation Systems Engineering. It covers transportation planning and policy making process, Transportation system analysis and design, Traffic theories and Safety.
  • This course introduces the students in this integral design approach for a Sustainable Urban/Architecture Design . First, this course is to discuss and explore the awareness of the environmental issues and the historical effort how Architecture and Urban planning meaningfully engage the environment. With case studies, student understand the recent technologies and researches . And , each student will have a concept for the sustainable approach and develop his/her design project at the technical and aesthetic levels.



  • 1. Course Objectives:

    l  Develop understanding of basic knowledge of environmental/energy problems

    l  Develop the ability to identify environmental phenomena in air, water, and soil systems.

    l  Improve students’ communication skills to understand and solve environmental and energy problems.

    2. Course Methods:

    l  Lecture Style

    * review previous materials

    * learn new materials

    * summarize new materials

    l  Student responsibilities for lecture

    * help control pace of class by questions

    * review notes before class to make good use initial review time

    * be prepared to ask questions about homework assignments in class or immediately after class

    l  Homework ground rules

    * purpose is to fully understand the concepts of environmental chemistry and to develop skills.

    * discussion is encouraged.

    * copying is scholastic dishonesty.

    * use hand writing for calculation (MS Word and HWP are not highly recommended).

    * homework can be submitted after dead line but there is no assurance that it will be given full credit (- 15% per every week).

    l  Consultation

    * best before and after class.

    * please try to arrange office visit in class or by e-mail or phone.

    * chase your instructor after dinner time.
