Students prepare for careers as civil engineering technicians who typically work under the direct supervision of a project engineer. The program environment emulates a civil engineering/surveying firm, giving students practice in many aspects of the profession, including defining project requirements, conducting survey/field work, field engineering, construction staking, designing, estimating, modeling and client presentations.
Instruction includes computer-aided design, the preparation of engineering calculations, and coordinate systems which include lengths, directions, slopes, bearings areas, volumes, weights densities, moments, forces, reactions, flows, and loads. Students learn to use a variety of computer software application packages, including, but not limited to Word, Excel, Civil 3D, CadrePro, Hydraflow and SurvCE.
