About this course
This program option prepares students to transfer to a four-year institution for civil engineering. Civil engineers design and supervise the construction of roads, buildings, airports, tunnels, dams, bridges, and water supply and sewage systems. They must consider many factors in the design process, from the construction costs and expected lifetime of a project to government regulations and potential environmental hazards such as earthquakes. Students with a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering may continue their education in graduate school, while others may enter industry.
