Overview

Civil and Environmental Systems Engineering is designed for a junior- or senior-year analysis and economics as applied to civil engineering. This civil system/engineering economics course has evolved over roughly the last 30 years and draws on the fields of operations research and economics to create skills in problem solving. Because of the presence of several more advanced sections and sections focusing on applications in the book, it may also be useful as a text for first-year graduate courses that introduce students to civil systems.
