Arts/Humanities Elective


This program will provide students with the opportunity to analyze the role of architecture in the building construction industry. It will develop their understanding of the design process and the relationship of the architect, engineer and contractor.

In the classroom, laboratory and field, students will be introduced to the fundamentals of both manual and computer-aided drafting, fundamentals of design, building construction, mechanical equipment and the basic engineering of structures. The program emphasizes the establishment of basic knowledge of the aesthetics of architecture, marketable talent in drafting/design and an understanding of the principles of engineering as they relate to architecture.

Graduates of this technical major may work as technicians in architectural and engineering offices, construction estimating, general contracting, drafting, building supply firms, public agencies and as technical salespeople.

The civil engineering technology program is accredited by the technology accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (TAC of ABET).

A graduate of this program will earn an associate of applied science degree in civil engineering technology.
