Enginerring: Civil (ND)

The Engineering: Civil track program at Glendale College is designed to satisfy the lower division requirements of a 4-year civil engineering program so that students can transfer to an ABET  accredited university and complete their training in two years (60 units or less). Emphasis is  placed on articulating to the California State University, CSU and University of California, UC  systems. Students develop a foundational mixture of analytical knowledge and practical project based hands-on skills that prepares them to succeed in a range of civil engineering topics such as  environmental, geotechnical, structural and transportation engineering as well as  sustainability and design. Program Learning Outcomes: Upon successful completion of the civil engineering certificate program for transfer, students should be able to: use science and mathematical skills required for occupational needs; design a system, component, or process with supervision of a licensed engineer to meet desired needs; analyze engineering problems and make appropriate decisions with the supervision of a licensed engineer; demonstrate appropriate technical written, verbal and drawing, communication skills; work effectively in a team and exercise initiative and function in a leadership role.

This certificate does not satisfy the major requirements for the Associate in Science degree.
