This program prepares students to accurately and technically correct civil engineering drawings. Students learn the fundamentals of surveying, CAD drafting, site planning and development and green or sustainability technology, which enables them to pursue careers as civil CAD drafters and surveying technicians.
Upon successful completion of the program, the graduate will:
Prepare civil drawings using two-dimensional CAD software; apply the knowledge of construction terminology, construction materials and construction methods and describe their influence on site development.
Apply the knowledge of construction terminology, construction materials and construction methods and describe their influence on site development.
Analyze the physical problems and assets of a building site to produce a logical esthetic solution to site development.
Utilize surveying and GPS equipment to create construction surveys, boundary surveys, control surveys and mapping.
Demonstrate the application of surveying techniques to highway surveying.
Explain the impact of green or sustainable technologies to site plan development in ways that will not harm the environment or deplete natural resources.
