Engineering with Emphasis in Civil Engineering Applications (AS Degree S0832)

Natural Science Division

Engineering with Emphasis in Civil Engineering Applications program prepares the students for an entry-level career working as a technician under the direction of civil engineers, surveyors, contractors and architects through project-based learning activities.  This degree program is for job seekers interested in civil engineering and civil engineering technology; as well as students interested in university programs in civil engineering and civil engineering technology.

Engineering with Emphasis in Civil Engineering Applications degree incorporates the engineering, science, and communications skills needed by an entry-level civil engineering technology employee.  Completion of this degree will prepare graduates for multiple terminal technologist positions, including engineering technician, civil engineering technician, project engineer, engineering assistant, and designer. Through this program students will develop proficiency with mechanical systems, Microsoft Excel, oral communication, functional analysis, project management, developing presentations, laboratory analysis, land surveying, mapping, computer aided design, geometric dimensioning and tolerances, programming, numerical methods and technical reporting.  Completion of this degree may facilitate transfer into B.S. programs into Civil Engineering, Construction Engineering, and Construction Engineering Management related programs.
