Resilient Precast Concrete Certificate

UMD-Civil Engineering, Dept of
Swenson College of Science and Engineering
  • Program Type: Undergraduate credit certificate
  • Requirements for this program are current for Fall 2018
  • Required credits to graduate with this degree: 16
  • Degree:
The focus of the Resilient Precast Engineering Certificate (RPEC) program is two-pronged. Participants will attain the skill and understanding required to design precast concrete structures, and in the process, learn how to apply resiliency-based values to their decision-making. Throughout the process, the professional and communication skills of the participants will also be honed. Participants who have completed the five-course curriculum will graduate with a deeper knowledge related to the engineering, resiliency, and business aspects of precast concrete.
Program Delivery
This program is available:
  • via classroom (the majority of instruction is face-to-face)
Admission Requirements
Students must complete 45 credits before admission to the program.
A GPA above 2.0 is preferred for the following:
  • 2.50 already admitted to the degree-granting college
  • 2.50 transferring from another University of Minnesota college
  • 2.50 transferring from outside the University

Required prerequisites
Pre-major Requirements (3 cr)
CE 3115 - Structural Analysis (3.0 cr)
General Requirements
The Board of Regents, on recommendation of the faculty, grants degrees from the University of Minnesota. Requirements for an undergraduate degree from University of Minnesota Duluth include the following:
  1. Students must meet all course and credit requirements of the departments and colleges or schools in which they are enrolled including an advanced writing course. Students seeking two degrees must fulfill the requirements of both degrees. However, two degrees cannot be awarded for the same major.
  2. Students must complete all requirements of the Liberal Education Program.
  3. Students must complete a minimum of 120 semester credits.
  4. At least 30 of the last 60 degree credits earned immediately before graduation must be awarded by UMD.
  5. Students must complete at least half of their courses at the 3xxx-level and higher at UMD. Study-abroad credits earned through courses taught by UM faculty and at institutions with which UMD has international exchange programs may be used to fulfill this requirement.
  6. If a minor is required, students must take at least three upper division credits in their minor field from UMD.
  7. The minimum cumulative UM GPA required for graduation will be 2.00 and will include only University of Minnesota coursework. A minimum UM GPA of 2.00 is required in each UMD undergraduate major and minor. No academic unit may impose higher grade point standards to graduate.
  8. Diploma, transcripts, and certification will be withheld until all financial obligations to the University have been met.

CE 3115 - Structural Analysis
Credits: 3.0 [max 3.0]
Prerequisites: 2017, Math 3280 (concurrent), BSCE candidate
Grading Basis: A-F or Aud
Typically offered: Every Fall & Spring
Introduction to the behavior of structures. Students will learn about the loads on structures, and how to determine the path of these loads through the structure. Topics include: truss analysis, shear and moment diagrams, deflections, analysis of indeterminate structures, influence lines, and shear and moment envelopes. prereq: 2017, Math 3280 (concurrent), BSCE candidate
CE 4126 - Design of Concrete Structures
Credits: 3.0 [max 3.0]
Grading Basis: A-F or Aud
Typically offered: Every Fall & Spring
The design of concrete structures based on applicable codes. Topics covered include: design of beams and slabs to resist moment and shear, design of columns, reinforcement detailing, and deflection control. prereq: 3115, BSCE Candidate, no Grad cr
CE 4100 - Applications of Management in Resilient Precast Concrete
Credits: 1.0 [max 1.0]
Grading Basis: A-F or Aud
Typically offered: Every Fall & Spring
Taken concurrently with the online version of BUS 2400 (Fundamentals of Organizational Management), this course will provide insight into the project organization and management side of the precast concrete industry. The themes of resiliency and organizational management in precast concrete will be examined through a series of case studies with local precast concrete industry partners. This course cannot be taken as a standalone one-credit course; it must be taken concurrently with BUS 2400 or after successful completion of BUS 2400. pre-req: CE 4126, BUS 2400 concurrently or previously completed; no grad credit
