Plans of Study

 

The Associate of Applied Science Degree in Civil Engineering Technology provides a basis for entry-level careers in all phases of the construction continuum: planning, design, construction and operations. The Associate of Applied Science is designed as a terminal degree providing those skills necessary for immediate employment. Program graduates are prepared to work for either private or governmental segments of the construction industry requiring civil engineering technicians. Specific employment positions include manual or computer assisted (CAD) construction drawing and contract document preparation for commercial, heavy and industrial/institutional projects, construction inspection, survey crew operations, and construction material quality control and quality assurance.

In addition to providing entry-level positions, the degree provides opportunities for individuals seeking career changes, continuing education, and skills enhancement. The Civil Engineering Technology degree is preparation for immediate, productive employment.

Upon completion of the Associate Degree in Civil Engineering Technology, the graduate will be able to:

  • Prepare engineering drawings for public and private work projects utilizing computer aided drafting (CAD).
  • Perform standardized field and laboratory testing on civil engineering materials soils, aggregates, asphalt and Portland cement concrete, masonry, steel and wood in accordance with American Society of Testing Methods (ASTM) procedures and the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) Construction Materials Specifications.
  • Correctly apply regulatory and industry standards to design public utility systems, including sanitary wastewater collection systems, storm-water management systems and water distribution systems.
  • Apply an integrated system of digital levels, total stations, data collectors/controllers, global positioning system equipment and associated software in surveying and construction related problem solving applications including building, utility and transportation systems.
  • Determine forces and stresses in elementary structural systems.
  • Apply ODOT, Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), and industry design standards to plan, design, and detail a simulated highway including drainage structures.
  • Apply subdivision regulations and surveying laws in the preparation of preliminary sketch, preliminary plat, and final plat for a major private platted land subdivision.
  • Perform preliminary site investigations, research infrastructure records, secure appropriate codes and regulations, and prepare a set of preliminary drawings of an urban redevelopment site.
  • Perform quantity takeoffs and estimates for heavy construction projects.

The Civil Engineering Technology, Surveying Certificate is a one-year, three-semester program, which provides a basis for entry-level careers in survey field and office operations. The one-year certificate is a directed focus program, which empowers students with those skills necessary for construction layout of buildings and roadways and, working under the direction of a Registered Surveyor, in land surveying and subdivision of land. Specific employment positions include instrument person, field crew chief, and drafter/designer.

The Land Surveying Certificate encompasses the required 16 semester hours of surveying courses, which, when coupled with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, fulfills the State of Ohio Board of Registration for Engineers and Surveyors Education Requirements toward registration as a Professional Surveyor.
