Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering provides surveyors and engineers at construction companies, public work departments and transportation companies with comprehensive training and firm grounding in fundamental principles for better on-the-job performance.

Students discover how to perform land and construction surveys and prepare topographic maps and right-of-way layouts. Finally, they learn about the design and construction of buildings, bridges, roads, tunnels, water supply, and sewerage systems.

Students should have their high school diploma or a GED Equivalent Certificate before enrollment. Successful program graduates are able to:

  • Explain the principles associated with linear surveying, transit surveying, topographic surveying, hydrographic surveying and city surveying, and the related engineering applications and operations.
  • Design,detail, and construct using structural steel, reinforced concrete and wood
  • Apply mathematical and scientific principles in the engineering context.
  • Design and detail foundations, steel and concrete building frames, roof trusses, plate girders, flat slabs, retaining walls, masonry arches, rigid frames, and steel bridges.
  • Design,prepare, and construct roads paved with concrete and asphalt.
