The Civil Engineering program provides a broad, science-based curriculum for those interested in pursuing an engineering career. Emphasis is placed on engineering mechanics, engineering materials, computer aided design (CAD), structural mechanics, surveying, and strength of materials. Foundation courses are provided in mathematics, physics, chemistry and general education electives. The program emphasizes geotechnical design and foundation materials testing, surveying, materials science analysis and testing, hydraulics and hydrology, and computer assisted drawing.
Graduates may assist in the design and supervision of highway and construction projects, be employed in the field of materials analysis and testing, or assist consulting engineers in private practice. Some civil engineering technicians inspect water treatment systems while others may estimate costs, specify materials to be used, and participate in designing highways, dams, and other structures.
Engineering technicians use their knowledge of science, engineering, mathematics, and technical processes. They often apply the principles, designs, or procedures developed by engineers to practical situations. Employers may include energy companies, engineering consultants, government agencies, and many other industries and businesses.
Transfer and articulation agreements establish pathways for Belmont College graduates to complete an associate degree and then transfer to complete a bachelor’s degree seamlessly. Articulation agreements with Kent State University, Tuscarawas Campus located in New Philadelphia, Ohio, provide pathways to complete a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering Technology.
