These curriculums are designed to prepare students through the study and application of principles from mathematics, natural sciences, and technology and applied processes based on these subjects.
Course work includes mathematics, natural sciences, engineering sciences and technology.
A course of study that prepares students to use basic engineering principles and technical skills to carry out planning, documenting and supervising tasks in sustainable land development and public works and facilities projects. Includes instruction in the communication and computational skills required for materials testing, structural testing, field and laboratory testing, site analysis, estimating, project management, plan preparation, hydraulics, environmental technology, and surveying. Graduates should qualify for technician-level jobs with both public and private engineering, construction, and surveying agencies.
Graduates should qualify to obtain occupations such as technical service providers, materials and technologies testing services, engineering technicians, construction technicians and managers, industrial and technology managers, or research technicians.
Upon successful completion of the Civil Engineering Technology degree, graduate should be able to:
- Produce engineering documents using appropriate techniques and skills.
- Determine forces and stress of elementary structural systems using appropriate mathematics, science, and engineering principles.
- Conduct standard civil field and laboratory tests and measurements and analyze the yielded data and provide technical reports.
- Apply surveying methods for land measurements and/or construction layout.
- Use of software to solve civil problems and develop material quantities.
- Think critically about technical problems, communicates effectively, and performs as a responsible professional.
