Civil Engineering Technology: Environmental
Associate of Applied Science Degree Program

Catalog Year 2013-2014

MHCC Faculty Adviser:
Dr. Thomas McCormack.: 503-491-7001 - Room AC 2391

The field of civil engineering is the most visible of the engineering disciplines. The highways and streets we drive on; the airports, harbors, and railroads that connect our country; the water and sewer systems that protect our health; and the dikes and dams that protect our property are all the product of the civil engineering team. The environmental option will provide preparation that allows civil engineering technicians to support civil engineers in the environmental issues related to all areas of city, county and state infrastructure.

Additional Program Outcomes
At the completion of this program, students should be able to:

  • Produce construction documents for a subdivision site
  • Design a conventional storm and sanitary sewer system
  • Use both traditional and modern electronic surveying equipment
  • Design conventional horizontal and vertical curves for highway route
  • Working in a team, stake out a highway alignment for construction
  • Implement applicable environmental auditing requirements based on the requirements in ASTM-1527
  • Conduct an energy analysis/audit for the design of new buildings and renovation of existing buildings
  • Describe the relationship between ecological, economic and social sustainability
  • Use graphics software to enhance creativity and productivity in the engineering design
  • Describe the ethical responsibilities of the engineering profession
