Associate of Applied Science - 60 Credit Hours

Division: Science, Mathematics and Engineering
Department: Civil Engineering Technology

What is "Civil Engineering Technology"?

In Civil Engineering Technology, students are prepared to work as technicians in the planning, design, construction and operation of the built environment in our civilized world. A strong background in basics of architectural and civil construction and in-depth study of advanced topics such as surveying, construction management and structural analysis prepares students to produce and use construction documents and perform basic design and analysis.

Program Outcomes

  • Assist in the management of construction projects with emphasis on safety, quality and continuous improvement.
  • Describe the mechanics of structural design.
  • Communicate effectively and professionally through proper use of oral, written and graphic skills.
  • Recognize professional, ethical and societal responsibilities, respect diversity and commit to lifelong learning.
  • Employ logical and concise problem-solving techniques to complex problems.
  • Function effectively in teams, demonstrating a cooperative effort to evaluate and solve problems and to develop and implement plans.
  • Use surveying equipment and software applications to safely collect data, solve technical problems and lay out construction projects.

Transferability

Formal articulation agreements with other colleges and universities indicate how Sinclair programs and courses will transfer to other institutions.

Additional Information

The Program Educational Objectives are as follows:

  • Graduates have the knowledge and skills necessary to function as a design technician or closely related position in industry.
  • Graduates have the knowledge and skills necessary to transfer into a baccalaureate degree program.
