COURSE CONTENT

Student Learning Outcomes:
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:
Untitled document
1.   Apply fundamental civil engineering principles to solve engineering design problems.
2.   Apply knowledge of local and State regulatory requirements to solve engineering design problems.
3.   Prepare a set of civil engineering drawings using the plan, profile and cross section views.
 

Objectives: Untitled document
Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:
1.  Prepare plan, profiles, typical detail sheets, working drawings, site map, and grading plans for site construction and drainage.  
2.  Apply civil engineering design principles to problem solving situations such as parking lot layout, flexible pavement design, hydrology and hydraulic computations, fire protection system design, concrete retaining walls design, and storm drain design.
3.  Interpret and apply zoning, fire and storm water regulations and California construction codes to solve civil engineering design problems.
