Additional Information

  • Students are strongly encouraged to complete a course in Mechanics of Materials, also known as Strength of Materials, before transferring to a university.
  • Courses in engineering technology do not fulfill any of the requirements for the Area of Emphasis in Civil Engineering.
  • Although it is possible to complete the B.S. Degree in Civil Engineering in four semesters after earning the associate's degree, students typically need five or six semesters to complete requirements.
