Students will utilize computer programs such as AutoCAD and Microstation as tools in computer, and civil engineering design and documentation solution that supports Building Information Modeling workflows.

There will also be use of other relevant software to explore structures with emphasis on both the analytical and graphical approaches to trusses and building frames, design in steel of tension members, beams, columns, welded and bolted connections; eccentrically loaded and moment resistant joints; and plate girders.

  • Civil Engineering Design and Documentation Solution
  • Construction Project Administration
  • Engineering Plan and Specification Development
  • Computer Engineering Projects

Students will be able to oversee and participate in construction project administration; assist in overseeing engineering plan and specification development, and ensure compliance with design specifications, codes, and District and other regulatory standards. Their training in AutoCAD will allow them to better understand project performance, maintain more consistent data and processes, and respond faster to change.

The department will now be able to host a number of research opportunities in the area of computer engineering and civil engineering design and planning necessary to meet the changes in global demands.
