Fountains, golf courses, and music: Design projects in water resources engineering education
The following is a summary of design projects that have been included in a Junior Level Water Resources Engineering course that is required for all Civil and Environmental Engineering majors. The projects are structured to encompass the fundamentals of applied fluid mechanics, while at the same time, providing the students an opportunity to be creative and bring water resources engineering ”to life”. The students (working in groups of 3) designed a water feature (fountain) and a golf course water system for the proposed resort, ”Le Reve”, on the Las Vegas strip.
