    We are offering two different boat tours this summer. In addition to the traditional Secrets of the Schuylkill River Tour, we are adding a Walnut to Walnut Tour.

    We have had to cancel the Walnut to Walnut portion of this tour. You can still sign up for the Secrets of the Schuylkill River Tour.  September 4 has been set as a new date for either or both of these tours. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

    Walnut to Walnut: This tour will start at Penns Landing at Walnut Street, travel down the Delaware River and then up the Schuylkill River to the Walnut Street Pier. This is not a published, public tour and has been arranged for the exclusive benefit of members of the Engineers’ Club (and their guests).
    Note: This is a one-way tour; you will be responsible for your own surface transportation between the two docks.  You can park at either the departure or landing location; SEPTA Bus Routes 21 and 42 travel along Walnut / Chestnut Streets between the Schuylkill River and Penns Landing. The Market Street El travels under Market Street from 30th Street to 2nd Street.


    Secrets of the Schuylkill River: Take a one-hour fun and fact-filled guided sunset boat tour that highlights the past, present and future of the Hidden River. Discover the sights, sounds, and history of the river, from the early 1700s at historic Bartram's Garden, to the 1800s at the Fairmount Water Works, to award-winning 21st century skyscrapers. This tour will leave from the Walnut Street Pier, on the east side of the Schuylkill River beneath the Walnut Street Bridge.

    The course will familiarize the student with the content of the International Code Council’s International Building Code®, the purpose and intent of code requirements and how to apply the code to structures and occupancies. The course will primarily cover the non-structural provisions in depth (with a structural and materials overview), concentrating on Chapters 1 through 12, which are those most often in need of interpretation. The building code is the keystone to the entire family International Codes in that it provides the occupancy classifications, types of construction, building elements and terminology referenced by all of the codes. After completing this course, students should be able to understand the history and development of the codes and provisions that are used today; identify the main use group and type of construction of buildings; evaluate the buildings height and area requirements; explain the different types of life safety systems that are built into a structure; and, recognize the minimum code requirements for egress and fire protection based on use and occupancy.
