Civil Engineering Technology, AAS
This degree is designed for persons planning to enter the engineering profession at the technician level. The program is designed with input from a local engineering advisory board in order to best meet the needs of community employers. Technicians at YVC learn specialized skills that include plan-reading, surveying, computer drafting, materials testing, estimating, scheduling, and using engineering design software. Promising careers exist with municipal, state, and federal agencies, engineering and construction firms, public utilities, and local manufacturers.
Land Survey & Construction Design Technology, AAS
Students enrolled in the Land Survey & Construction Design Technology Program are trained in a broad base of engineering services such as structural systems, CAD, geo-technology, parametric software, building code, construction management and estimating, surveying sciences, and construction engineering leading to an Associates of Science degree in Land Survey & Construction Design Technology. This degree will provide students with professional-level skills on AutoCAD. They will also learn many skills essential to the light construction trade.
Many CAD courses use a drawing studio format, and students create portfolios of their work as a basic course or program goal. With this degree, students will be highly competitive with respect to job placement in the construction design field.
Engineering Transfer Track 2, AS-T T2
This degree is for students who are interested in pursuing a bachelor’s degree in engineering, computer science (information technology), or physics (Track 2) at a four-year institution.
This degree is appropriate for a student who has a strong commitment to majoring in one of the sciences and who is ready to enter MATH& 151: Calculus I and ENGL& 101. Completion of this degree will prepare the transfer student for upper division study in the sciences; however, it does not guarantee admission to the major. Course sequences should be completed at one institution. For example, the physics sequence or chemistry sequence should be completed at one school.
Advising is a critical element for students pursuing the associate in science – transfer degree in order to determine exactly which courses are included in each of the categories. Students are responsible for checking specific requirements of the four-year institution.
Note: Special advising is required for this degree.
