Time value of money concepts required to perform economic analysis on proposed engineering alternatives are introduced. Amortization rate and period, interest rate and feasibility study of projects are also taught.

Earth Dam 

This course presents fundamental principles underlying the design and construction of earth and rockfill dams. The general principles presented herein are also applicable to the design and construction of earth levees. The objective of this course is to present guidance on the design, construction, and performance monitoring of and modifications to embankment dams. The design and construction of earth and rockfill dams are complex because of the nature of the varying foundation conditions and range of properties of the materials available for use in the embankment.
