Throwback Thursday: CEE 010

Sitting in the Gibson computer lab in Fritz Lab, home to the civil engineering department, I noticed the posters from my class’ final architecture design project off to the side.  I took the introductory AutoCAD course, CEE 010, the fall of my sophomore year and really enjoyed the design aspect of it.  Our final project, which made up nearly half the class time, was to design an addition to the University Center on campus.  It was challenging to meet all of the requirements with such limited space around the existing building.  I remember my group spending over 20 hours in the computer lab finishing up the 3D model and another 6-7 organizing the poster and presentation the final weekend before it was due.  I was very happy with our completed project and my group received an A so it was cool to see and be reminded of it again over a year later.




The last picture is the current UC, the east side where the addition was to be designed.  The university is actually planning on undergoing this project in a few years.  They just began construction work renovating Williams Hall, an unused building on campus, this semester, which was the final project for the CEE 010 class before mine.  The class project this fall was remodeling the buildings on mountaintop campus, which Lehigh purchased recently.  I think it is great the university is going through so much change and growth and that they allow the students to be a part of the process.
