Civil Engineering Program Description
The Associate of Science (A.S.) in Civil Engineering will prepare students to transfer to a 4-yr institution for civil engineering.&nbsp; Civil Engineers design and supervise the construction of roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, and water supply and sewage systems.&nbsp; They must consider various factors of the design process, including construction costs, the expected lifetime of the project, government regulations and potential environmental hazards, along with other elements.&nbsp; Graduates of the program will be able to demonstrate an understanding of kinematics of a particle and a rigid body; an understanding of kinetics concerning force and acceleration, work and <br>energy, impulse and momentum for a particle and a rigid body; an understanding of, and application for, force vectors; an understanding of equilibrium of a particle and a rigid body; an understanding of the basic concepts of thermodynamics; an understanding of mass and energy balance analysis for closed and open systems; an understanding of gas power cycles, vapor cycles, and combined power cycles; an understanding of stress and strain; an understanding of mechanical properties of materials; an understanding of axial loading, torsion, bending and transverse shear; an understanding of stress and strain transformations; design and conduct experiments, as well as analyze and interpret data; and apply the engineering design process.&nbsp; <br>
