The Civil Engineering Graphics Certificate of Proficiency program is a one-year program designed to prepare a graphics technician to work directly under the supervision of an engineer, architect or designer producing detailed drawings. Civil Engineering Graphics Technicians are specialists in translating the rough sketches, layouts and written specifications of architects, engineers, and designers into a drawing showing the complete details and specifications for the finished project under the close direction of a supervisor.

Civil Engineering Graphics Emphasis certificate graduates will:

  • Be prepared for a range of entry level positions in the civil engineering field with limited responsibilities and scope
  • Identify the elements and principles of civil engineering graphics design
  • Identify and explain common symbols, materials, scales, and terminology used in the field
  • Demonstrate familiarity with the many tools and techniques associated with design and its application in the work place
  • Exhibit analytical thought, informed judgment, and ethical behavior
  • Produce a professional resume, cover letter, and industry ready portfolio
  • Demonstrate critical thinking, teamwork, communication, intercultural appreciation, and technical and information literacy skills

It is the student's responsibility to discuss sequencing and work out their individual schedule with a counselor or adviser. Any developmental coursework a student may be required to complete may increase the program length.
