This email provides additional information on the land development project.
Good luck! Prof. Toole
- Several students requested a copy of the autocad file that was used to create the topo map that was provided to each team at the first land development lab. This file is named "ENGR 100 Devel Project.dwg" and can be found and copied from my public folder (academic\civil.eng\ttoole\public\engr100).
- Each team will make a presentation on their design process and recommended design during the third land development lab period. This presentation should be ten minutes per team and will count as 20% of your project grade. The use of Powerpoint is encouraged but not required. A word file containing presentation tips that was developed by several faculty members is attached.
- Each team should create their own list of assigned technical roles at the start of the project. Feel free to use the technical roles assignment form provided to you on the previous projects as a template.

If your group/team chooses to use Powerpoint for your short oral presentation, here's where you can get some software help (beyond of course the Help function within the program itself):
- Tech Guide: "Getting Started with Powerpoint 97" (will be pretty okay for 2000 too), see Tech Guides at ISR(library) site, or go directly to:
- sign up for an "element k" account, which gives you access to on-line tutorials (on the whole software or selected parts) for Powerpoint and a lot of other stuff. See:
- stop by the tech desk to get an appointment with a tutor.
- ask around if you have a quick question....a lot of students and faculty have gotten pretty good with Powerpoint, just by using it for awhile.
Assignments for November 28
Complete alternative analysis (decision matrix) for at least three
Include rough cost estimate for each concept design.
Complete large site plan and any other drawings for presentation.
Prepare oral presentation, with 10 minutes maximum per team.
All teams must be ready to present on this day!
Prepare draft of written report, which is due the following week on
You will need to have all of the work done for the written report in order
to do your oral presentation, so you might as well write the report while you
prepare your oral presentation!
