Introduction to Infrastructure Description

Introduction to Infrastructure: An Introduction to Civil andEnvironmental Engineering  breaks new ground in preparingcivil and environmental engineers to meet the challenges of the21st  century.  The authors use theinfrastructure that is all around us to introduce students to civiland environmental engineering, demonstrating how all the parts ofcivil and environmental engineering are interrelated to helpstudents see the "big picture" in the first or second year of thecurriculum.

Students learn not only the  what  of theinfrastructure, but also the  how  and the why  of the infrastructure. Readers learn theinfrastructure is a system of interrelated physical components, andhow those components affect, and are affected by, society,politics, economics, and the environment. Studying infrastructureallows educators and students to develop a valuable link betweenfundamental knowledge and the ability to apply that knowledge, sostudents may translate their knowledge to new contexts.

The authors' implementation of modern learning pedagogy(learning objectives, concrete examples and cases, and hundreds ofphotos and illustrations), and chapters that map well to the ABETaccreditation requirements AND the ASCE Civil Engineering Body ofKnowledge 2nd  edition (with recommendations forusing this text in a 1, 2, or 3 hour course) make this text a keypart of any civil and/or environmental engineering curriculum.
