CIVIL ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY
Associate of Science Degree
The Associate of Science in Civil Engineering Technology is a course of study that prepares students to analyze construction sites, collaborate with other Engineers to design and properly assess potential construction sites and projects, draft plans, and write reports. Technical requirement classes are designed to provide students with fundamentals in surveying, analyzing material strength, and structural drafting and design. This course of study will provide students with an overview of technical drawing, construction management and procedures, planning, and estimating. The student learning outcomes meet the professional standards of technicians in this field.
General Education Requirements
With an AS in Civil Engineering Technology, graduates will be able to work in an engineering or consulting firm, creating CADD maps, using cadastral data to produce and manipulate engineering plans.
The GCC Advantage
The advantage of earning an associate degree or certificate from Guam Community College is that the faculty, staff and administrators take to heart its mission - "to be a leader in career and technical workforce development by providing the highest quality education and job training in Micronesia."
Our instructors care about and want their students to succeed. Often, they will spend the extra time to make sure a concept is clear, and that students understand the practical, real-life applications of the classroom concepts they are learning. Also, GCC's partnerships with over 100 businesses ensure that what is taught in the classroom corresponds with what businesses need GCC graduates to know when they become employees. These partnerships include internships and apprenticeships that often lead to sustainable jobs and careers in our island’s workforce.
All students who declare a major are assigned an Academic Advisor. Students are strongly urged to visit your advisor, who can help you draft an educational plan with course sequencing that meets your personal, academic, and career goals.
Student Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the AS in Civil Engineering Technology program, students will be able to:
- Properly use surveying equipment and tools and perform applications accordingly.
- Create a construction drawing set consisting of at least six sheets from a design.
- Perform basic techniques and skills using modern engineering tools in the current civil engineering industry.
- Sequence the steps related to the construction process in chronological order.
The mission of the Civil Engineering Technology Program is to train engineering technicians for successful entry and performance in the civil engineering field.
