Program Description

The Associate in Science in Engineering: Civil Engineering Emphasis provides a strong preparation for students planning to transfer to a 4-year university and major in Civil Engineering. The curriculum includes fundamental engineering and science core courses as well as required lower-division courses in Civil Engineering.

PLEASE NOTE: The courses that universities and colleges require for transfer vary. When selecting courses for transfer purposes, students should consult with Counseling Services to determine the particular transfer requirements of specific transfer institutions.

Program Outcomes

  1. Develop technical solutions to civil engineering problems using principles of mathematics, science, and engineering.
  2. Analyze and interpret empirical data to provide a basis for solutions to civil engineering problems.
  3. Communicate orally and in writing the results of experiments, projects, and data analysis.
