CIVE 650 Geosynthetics in Civil Infrastructure 3.0 Credits
An overview of geosynthetics used in civil infrastructure applications, including geotextiles, geogrids, geocomposities, plastic pipes and geofoam. Covers testing and design based on the primary application function such as separation, filtration, drainage, reinforcement in roadways, soil consolidation, and retaining structures. Analyze failure criteria and determine the long-term engineering design values.

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
For additional information, and an up-to-date list of the writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Drexel University Writing Center page
