Civil Design and Surveying Technology, Certificate of Proficiency

Requirements

The Certificate of Proficiency in Civil Design and Surveying Technology will be dedicated to teaching the technical and functional elements of civil design and surveying, and will educate students in the process of taking civil related projects from data obtained from ground observations and measurements made by surveying to conceptual design to completed construction documents and finally to surveying and staking the proposed design on the ground so it can be constructed. Students will be required to take civil and surveying courses currently offered in the Engineering Design Technology (EDT) department including the courses from the Drafting Technology program and the Surveying and Mapping program. From these courses students will learn the basics of surveying, civil drafting and design, and be trained in industry standard two-dimensional and three-dimensional software packages. Students will also take courses in surveying applications, land development, advanced field and office surveying, and civil design. A student with a Certificate of Proficiency in Civil Design and Surveying Technology will be prepared for an entry level job as a civil drafter/designer or survey technician. They can increase their education, training, and employability by completing the Associate of Applied Science in Engineering Design Technology, Certificate of Proficiency in Mapping Technology, Certificate of Proficiency in Surveying Technology, Associate of Applied Science in Surveying Technology (pending), Associate of Science in Surveying and Mapping and/or a Bachelor of Science in Surveying and Mapping.
