Civil and Environmental Engineering Technology

Civil and Environmental Engineering Technology No discipline offers a greater diversity of career opportunities than does civil and environmental engineering. Civil and environmental engineering technicians work on every phase of design and construction of buildings, roadways, bridges, public water systems, dams, landfills, and recreation facilities.

Graduates of this program have the opportunity to work outdoors on construction and surveying projects or indoors in design or estimating offices. Students are well prepared to continue in Vermont Tech’s Bachelor of Science programs in Architectural Engineering Technology, Sustainable Design and Technology, or Business Technology and Management.

The Civil and Environmental Engineering Technology program provides training in design, surveying, materials testing, the construction process, structural design of buildings, water/ wastewater engineering, and solid waste management. Students learn to prepare construction drawings using computer-aided drafting and design (CADD) equipment at the state-of-theart computer workstations. Graduates find work with engineering design firms, government agencies, construction firms, and testing laboratories. Some graduates go on to become licensed land surveyors or registered professional engineers.

Students with an Associates of Engineering in Civil and Environmental Engineering

Technology will be able to:

• Perform in the workforce with confidence in the use of CADD software and the ability to create site plans from raw survey data, design sewage disposal systems, and develop profiles and cross-sections for highway design.

• Communicate technical information in writing, speaking, listening, and interpersonal skills to work effectively as part of a team in the workforce.

• Understand the principles of plane surveying, water/wastewater treatment, engineering materials, and estimating quantities and, using appropriate computer applications, apply that knowledge as a consultant in the workforce.

• Be able to understand design principles and function actively as part of a design team in the workforce with acquired skills and the knowledge of building materials and structures, site development, and estimating quantities.

• Develop the skills and ability needed to continue learning through formal education or adapt to changing technologies in the workplace.

The program is accredited by the Technology Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.

The minimum number of credits required for a degree is 70.

*Students who do not place into ENG 1060 or 1061 may take up to three terms to complete English Composition (see English Requirements, page 99). This may require summer courses or additional terms to complete the degree.

**Students must complete a minimum of one Arts and Humanities (AH) and one Social Science (SS) elective.

Note: Students taking MAT 1520 (or equivalent) may take PHY 2041/2042 instead of PHY 1041/1042.

Computer Engineering Technology Graduates of this program possess an understanding and working knowledge of both computer hardware and software. With a command of the total environment, a computer technician is able to relate to both programmers and hardware engineers. The theory developed in the classroom is reinforced with laboratory work, which allows students to develop confidence and skill in their newly acquired knowledge and to accurately report the results of their observations. Along with two networked computer labs, students use the facilities available in three additional instrumented electronics labs.

Computer Engineering Technology students share many common first-semester courses with the Electrical Engineering Technology students. This first semester provides students with a firm base in fundamental principles. Subsequent semesters’ offerings stress a systems approach, with students investigating computer-based applications from both a hardware and a software perspective. Interfacing computers with their peripherals and network applications are emphasized. Graduates are well prepared for admission to Vermont Tech’s Bachelor of Science program in Computer Engineering Technology.

With an extra year’s work, students may pursue a dual associate’s degree with Electrical Engineering Technology.

Students with an Associate of Science in Computer Engineering Technology will be able to:

• Design and implement combinational and sequential digital circuits using simple tools and techniques

• Interface simple analog or digital hardware to a microcontroller and manipulate that hardware using programs in both assembly language and a high level language

• Understand port access, interrupt service routines, and hardware timing issues

• Develop small programs written in assembly language

• Develop small programs written in a high level language

• Understand the basic concepts of object-oriented programming

• Install and configure a significant operating system

• Administer a computer system by managing its resource usage, interpreting the output of monitoring tools, and troubleshooting system problems





• Apply knowledge of network protocols from the physical layer through the transport layer to analyze and troubleshoot TCP/IP network problems

• Clearly communicate technical information in both oral and written form to peers and supervisors

• Understand the computer engineering technology profession, its diversity, and its related ethical and social issues.

• Function effectively in teams Computer Engineering Technology

• Demonstrate a commitment to quality, timeliness, continuous improvement, and lifelong learning The minimum number of credits required for a degree is 71.

*Students who do not place into ENG 1060 or 1061 may take up to three terms to complete English Composition (see English Requirements, page 99). This will require summer courses or additional terms to complete the degree.

**Students must complete a minimum of one Arts and Humanities (AH) and one Social Science (SS) elective Computer Engineering Technology Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering Technology Graduates of this program will experience a balanced treatment of hardware, software, and administrative (or “systems”) topics. As with the two-year degree, upon which this bachelor’s program builds, this program explores what goes on “under the hood” of a computer system.

Digital electronics and computer architecture are explored, as well as topics in programming, networks, and system administration. This broad-based approach is intended to give graduates a diverse range of career options.

Vermont Tech’s approach is to give students a good foundation in all aspects of computer technology so that they can adapt to changes in the field. Also, because hardware, software, and systems topics often overlap in the real world, Vermont Tech’s preparation will equip graduates to properly evaluate the entire computer system they are working with and understand how all of its aspects interact.

Students with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering Technology will be able to:

• Design and implement digital and embedded microcontroller systems in both the hardware and software areas using industry standard tools and techniques

• Evaluate new computer hardware technologies and make recommendations about such technologies based on features, performance, and cost

• Design and implement simple digital signal processing systems

• Implement standard algorithms and data structures, and develop network, multithreaded, and graphical applications

• Understand the purpose of various programming language features and how those features are implemented

• Use standard software engineering tools

• Understand and evaluate system performance and security

• Understand basic database design and administration

• Build, test, and document operating system software, such as a device driver, that interacts directly with hardware

• Clearly communicate technical information in both oral and written form to peers and supervisors

• Understand the Computer Engineering Technology profession, its diversity, and its related ethical and social issues

• Function effectively in teams
