Schedule

Fall 2017 CEE300 Schedule

CEE300 classes are organized into two types: 1) plenary, in which the entire class meets in LSE106, and 2) parallel rooms (WXLR A106, WXLR A108, WXLR 109, WXLR 111, WXLR 113), where we break into smaller groups and meet in separate rooms within the university. Tuesdays will be held in parallel.  Thursdays will have a mix of plenary and parallel sessions.

There is no textbook for CEE300.  Instead, text and video materials will be posted online here at cee300.com.  Students will be assigned to read the articles and watch the videos posted here, and be held accountable for demonstrating understanding of the material on exams and in group projects.
