  • Provides fundamentals of environmental, structural, geotechnical, and transportation engineering as related to the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam.
  • Explains how to quantify sustainable practice results for different fields.
  • Specifically tailored to a 16-week/one-semester course.
  • Presents numerous practical case studies throughout.


This book will provide a foundation to understand the development of sustainability in civil engineering, and tools to address the three pillars of sustainability: economics, environment, and society. It will also include case studies in the four major areas of civil engineering: environmental, structural, geotechnical, and transportation, and utilize the concepts found on the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam. It is intended for upper-level civil engineering sustainability courses. In addition, practical report writing and presentation giving will be proposed as evaluation metrics versus standard numerical questions and exam-based evaluations found in most civil engineering courses.
