Focus on all of the skills essential to emerging as a confident Civil Designer.
Master countless captivating topics including, but not limited to...
Our Civil Design Technologies program focuses on teaching the required skills currently used by individuals in the Civil Design industry. Modern infrastructure upgrade requirements are putting a strain on the availability of existing resources with these skills - which are in high demand. Existing technologies and tools available are also rapidly expanding - creating large gaps between existing skill sets and the knowledge required today to meet current infrastructure demands. Throughout this comprehensive program, we’ll explore all of the subject matter and applications necessary to dive into the expansive world of Civil Design.
This program is designed for both absolute beginners and current industry specialists. First, the program focuses on the primary discipline specific subjects including Introduction to Civil Design Technologies, Architectural Graphics and Sketching, Basics of Civil Design & Engineering, Physics I (Algebra based), Chemistry Essentials, Civil Construction Drawings, Trigonometry & Precalculus Essentials, Statics for Civil & Architectural Designers, Strength of Materials, Soil Mechanics, Construction Industry: Techniques and Technology, Reinforced Concrete Fundamentals, Foundation Engineering & Design, Surveying, AutoCAD Civil 3D Introduction, Highway Design, Highway Engineering, AutoCAD Civil 3D Essentials, Hydraulics and Hydrology, Water & Wastewater Systems, Under Ground Piping Networks, AutoCAD MEP.
Interleaved within the core courses you will also study to become a proficient 3D Parametric Solid Modeler & Detailer using an industry standard 3D Computer Aided Design tool called Revit.
