Civil Engineering Technology Program Recommended Sequence of Courses

Students interested in a suggested order for taking classes in this program, please view the recommended course sequence below.

A certificate of achievement will be awarded upon fulfillment of 24.50 units of Civil Engineering Technology Core Requirements with a grade of "C" or better. To receive an Associate's Degree in Civil Engineering Technology, additional coursework up to 60+ units is necessary to satisfy general education requirements. Consult a counselor for courses required for an associate’s degree.

It is important that students who are completing an Associate Degree and desire to transfer to a four-year institution meet with a counselor to plan their lower division coursework. While many majors at SRJC are intended to align with lower division major preparation required by California public universities, specific lower-division major requirements vary among individual campuses. See a counselor, visit the  Transfer Center, and visit the ASSIST webpages to review transfer preparation guides for specific schools and majors.

Upon successful completion of this major, the student will be able to:

  1. Define and describe civil engineering terminology, methods, procedures, standards and technology;
  2. perform mathematical, computer and statistical computations related to location, elevation, grade, distance, direction, area, volume and properties of civil engineering materials;
  3. communicate clearly and effectively in oral, written and graphic formats;
  4. prepare civil engineering documents and drawings using computer-aided drafting and geographic information systems technology;
  5. research, file, retrieve, analyze, locate and prepare drawings, maps, documents, records, reports and correspondence related to civil engineering projects;
  6. demonstrate analytical, critical thinking and decision-making skills in civil engineering, land surveying and development; and
  7. describe the influence/effect civil engineering, land surveying and development has on the local, regional, national and global communities.

Course Prerequisites and Advisories:
Courses in a program of study may have prerequisites or advisories; that is, courses that must or should be completed before taking that course. Please check for prerequisites or advisories by clicking on the course numbers in the Program Requirements section.

It is recommended that students who have not had high school courses in mathematics through plane geometry take the Math placement test and enroll in an appropriate course (e.g., CSKLS 371, CSKLS 372, MATH 150A & B, or MATH 151) prior to enrolling in certificate program courses.

For students with limited computer literacy, CS 101A OR CS 101B is recommended. Please contact the department or a counselor for more information.
