Civil Programming Technology (310)
Associate in Applied Science Degree
This program prepares students for employment in the fields of surveying, civil construction, bridge inspection, construction inspection, cost estimation, and civil drafting, and enables them to pursue a career of lifelong learning. Skills are developed in mathematics, science, problem solving, communication, computer-aided drafting, surveying, mechanics, and construction. Computer-aided drafting is an integral part of this program. A graduate of this program seeks employment as a civil drafter, surveying technician, estimator, and civil engineering technician with civil engineering firms, construction firms, private consulting engineering firms, governmental agencies, and surveying firms.
NOTE: Courses listed in the first/third semester will be scheduled for the fall; second/fourth semester courses will be scheduled for the spring. The student is encouraged to use the curriculum planner to keep track of courses taken and those still needed. In some cases, one or more courses may be taken in a different order than indicated on the planner. However, individual course prerequisites must be observed.
Prerequisites/Corequisites – Some courses require another course be taken beforehand or at the same time. To check if a course has a prerequisite or corequisite, see the course description.
