Design in Engineering Education
This paper focuses on the application of a case study of fundamentals of geotechnics to a highway embankment slope failure movement investigation to civil engineering curriculum development and education. The proposed case study is introduced into the first year elementary engineering design course. The proposed highway fill embankment slope case study project is planned to be further introduced for expanded discussions in the later semesters. Student exposure of case studies in the early part of the curriculum will benefit to other upper level engineering geology and soil mechanics courses. This project will also be helpful and connected to hydrologic engineering and transportation highway pavement engineering research work as well in the later semesters especially with senior design projects.
