Design Projects Sought for Civil Engineering Students

January 7, 2013

  Mentoring Student Projects: Civil engineering professor John Aidoo helps explain the principles of a design concept to a Rose-Hulman student working on a team project.

Freshman civil engineering students are seeking design projects to complete during the spring academic quarter. Traditionally, these projects are sponsored by local citizens and community groups.

As freshmen, the students have limited engineering skills, but they always show a lot of enthusiasm and creativity, and provide a genuine service to the community. Civil engineering professors John Aidoo and Jenny Mueller Price are expecting to have 12 different projects for teams to work on this spring.

Typical projects include parking lot layouts, solutions for drainage and traffic problems, simple waste treatment problems, floor plans for small buildings, and designs for athletic fields, playgrounds and park projects.

Each project is completed by the students in nine weeks. The spring quarter begins on March 4.

If you are interested in offering a project for Rose-Hulman’s freshman civil engineering design program, please contact professor Aidoo at 812-877-8594 or send an e-mail to describing your project by February 18.
