CET - 1210   SURVEYING
[3 hours]  Study of construction and land surveying techniques, including the use of a steel tape, level, transit, and total station.  Laboratory will stress surveying measurement and layout techniques.  Laboratory exercises will also introduce �AUTOCAD� and associated third party software applications to surveying.  Prerequisite: ENGT 1050; MATH 1320  Corequisite:  MATH 1320

CET - 2030   CONSTRUCTION GRAPHICS
[3 hours]  Computer drafting as related to construction engineering projects such as highways, streets, sanitary and storm sewers, and building sites.  The computer drafting portion will use Microstation and associated third party support (eg.Geopak).  Prerequisite: ENGT 1050; CET 1100

CET - 2110   MATERIALS TESTING
[3 hours]  Design of portland and asphalt cement concrete mixes and associated quality control tests of mortar, aggregates, asphalt cements, portland and asphaltic concrete.  Prerequisite: ENGT 1050

CET - 2210   HYDROLOGY AND HYDRAULICS
[3 hours]  Surface and ground-water hydrology/hydraulic concepts as related to rainfall/runoff and surface and  ground-water drainage.  Open and closed channel hydraulics will be studied.  Prerequisite: ENGT 1050

CET - 2220   SOIL MECHANICS
[3 hours]  Theory and application of soil properties as related to foundation design, including pressure distribution, bearing capacity, compressibility, consolidation, shear and stress analysis.  Laboratory will cover quality control tests.  Prerequisite: ENGT 1050; CET 1200

CET - 2250   STRUCTURAL DESIGN
[4 hours]  Principles of statics and strength of materials as applied to structural design of steel, reinforced concrete, and masonry (block and brick), using applicable codes.  Prerequisite: ENGT 1050; CET 1200

CET - 2980   SPECIAL TOPICS
