CURRICULUM GUIDE

 

Civil Technology

Associate in Applied Science Degree

 

Curriculum Code: 0178  (Effective Fall 2004 - Summer 2009)

 

Civil engineering technicians apply theory and principles of civil engineering in planning, designing, and overseeing the construction and maintenance of structures and facilities in the highway system.  They may work at construction or survey sites, offices or in testing labs with engineers, surveyors, supervisors, managers, or skilled trade workers.  The successful civil engineering technician must have a working knowledge of college algebra and trigonometry, civil drafting, communications, construction materials, surveying, and must be computer literate.  Civil engineering technicians work for construction, engineering, and architecture firms, government agencies, mapping agencies, and private petroleum and mining companies. Not all courses in this program transfer to all colleges. Students planning to transfer should see an academic advisor or counselor before enrolling in any course.
