This course provides the student with a working knowledge of the use of computers for Civil & Environmental Engineering Technology. No prior computer training is required. The course is designed to introduce the computer and its operating system in conjunction with lab assignments in the use of CAD. The fundamentals of CAD operation and application are presented through the use of civil and environmental engineering topics including site, structural, and environmental drawings. Major graphic subjects include creating and editing CAD primitive and complex entities, dimensioning, drawing construction, layout, and output. Spreadsheets are also introduced with applications appropriate to civil and environmental engineering including calculations, quantities, estimates, and graphs.
6 hours of lab per week
