Civil Engineering Materials: Concrete Lab 

The Civil Engineering Materials (CCE3101C) course is a lab-based class, which involves the design and evaluation of the materials, which students are expected to commonly come into contact with, when they immerse themselves in the field of Civil Engineering. Concrete is very important in this course because, it is used so frequently in this field. To get a good understanding of concrete, you have to break it down to its induvial components, analyze, test, and evaluate it.

In order to carry out the process of actually making the concrete, the students must, first, do research to figure out what goes into making the concrete. In addition to knowing the constituents involved in the process of making concrete, they must also do calculations to get the precise consistency and quality of concrete that is desired. They, must also know important properties in concrete and explain the effect of materials handling, variability and quality control methods. It is mind boggling to see that there are so many different factors that go into making concrete, but these students make it sound like it is nothing.
