TYPE OF COURSE:
Lecture course with assignments, examinations, laboratory work,
and problem solving activities.
CREDIT HOURS:
4 (30 Lecture hours; 20 Lab hours)
PREREQUISITES:
None
COURSE DESCRIPTION:
Introduction to the fundamental principles of materials commonly
used for engineering projects. Emphasis is on the properties and
applications of materials such as mineral aggregates, concrete,
timber, steel, aluminum, and plastic materials. Students shall
complete ASTM and/or AASHTO laboratory test methods of
materials. Formerly CET 242.
COURSE OBJECTIVES:
Upon completion of this course, the student will:
 Distinguish and describe material properties of mineral
aggregates
 Distinguish and describe material properties of concrete
 Distinguish and describe material properties of steel
 Distinguish and describe material properties of timber
 Distinguish and describe material properties of plastics and
other related materials
 Distinguish and describe material properties of aluminum
 Complete laboratory investigations of various materials
 Write laboratory reports

REFERENCE TEXT:
Materials for Civil and Construction Engineers, Current Edition,
by Mamlouk/Zaniewski
OTHER MATERIALS:
The following materials are required for this course:

Engineering computation paper, straight edge, engineer scale,
protractor, pencil, and eraser

Scientific Calculator (with trigonometric, radian, and root
function capability at minimum)

A copy of the instructor’s Engineering Course Guidelines for
the current quarter of instruction. Requirements of this
syllabus take precedence over those guidelines if a conflict
arises.
PORTFOLIOS:
Assignments should be organized in a portfolio as a professional
practice. Recommendations for doing so are provided in
PORTFOLIO GUIDELINES in the Engineering Course Guidelines.
EVALUATION SUMMARY:
Evaluation of the student’s final grade will be based upon the
following components and their assigned points. See FINAL
GRADE in the Engineering Course Guidelines for final scoring.
Additionally, one must complete all laboratories and pass the
Final Examination in order to pass the course.
