Students will learn the engineering and design requirements for a project within the built environment and receive a strong math and science foundation that will prepare them for the architecture/engineering/construction industry. With an understanding of the basic principles and technical aspects of the industry, program graduates typically work for an architect, engineer, contractor or subcontractor. Graduates who would like to continue their formal education may continue toward Seminole State's B.S. in Architectural Engineering Technology or B.S. in Construction degrees or may take advantage of university programs in engineering technology.
|BCN2230||Construction Materials and Methods I|
An introduction to the art of building, this course deals with whole systems of building: heavy timber framing, wood platform framing, masonry load bearing wall, structural steel framing, concrete framing and enclosures. The evolutionary development of the system, the properties of its major materials, the possibilities and limitations of the building method and the basis for choosing among systems is covered.

This course is an introduction to the techniques of mechanical drawing for three-dimensional spatial relationships, spatial visualization, sketching and graphical presentation. Engineering drawing, descriptive geometry and graphical solution techniques using both manual and computer methods will be emphasized. Lab fee required.
|ETD1340C||Computer-Aided Design II|
In this course students will learn advanced two- and three-dimensional drafting techniques. Menu and program modification will be emphasized along with improved speed and accuracy. Lab fee required.
This course will prepare the student for the field of Engineering Technology and/or related sciences. The course will focus on specialized practical knowledge related to the mathematical, scientific or technical aspects of mathematics, science and engineering. Fundamental principles of statics, co-planar and non-co-planar force systems including concurrent and non-concurrent forces. Additional focus will be placed on both friction and non-friction systems. Stress and strain evaluations on columns, beams, trusses and foundation systems will also be addressed.
This course covers the theory and practice of surveying, use and care of instruments, instrument error, balancing and closing traverses, introduction to land and construction surveying. Lab fee required.
|General Education Courses|
This is a course in the process of expository writing. Students will read essays and compose papers that are unified, organized, logically developed and supported, clearly stated and well-focused. Research techniques are introduced and incorporated into at least one composition. This course partially satisfies the writing requirement of S.B.E. 6A-10.030. Students must pass the core assignments with a grade of "C" or higher.
In this course students develop the ability to read literary texts critically, to think logically and creatively and to write and research effectively. Students must pass the core assignments with a grade of "C" or higher. This course partially satisfies the writing requirement of S.B.E. 6A-10.030.
|SPC1608||Introduction to Oral Communication|
The purpose of this course is to improve the basic skills of speaking and listening. Class exercises emphasize preparing and delivering public speeches, speaking with clarity and variety and listening with literal and critical comprehension.
|History General Education course||3|

|Mathematics General Education courses||6|
|Note: The following courses are required for students planning to transfer into the B.S. Engineering Technology and may be taken as part of the General Education requirement: MAC 2233 Concepts of Calculus and STA 2023 Statistical Methods or MAC 2311 Analytic Geometry and Calculus I and MAC 2312 Analytic Geometry and Calculus II or higher level mathematics courses.|
|Science General Education course (must be from two Areas)||6|
|Social Science General Education course (must be from two Areas)||6|
|Note: This A.S. degree is transferable into the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Architectural Engineering Technology offered at Seminole State.|
|Note: Students planning to transfer into the B.S. program must also fulfill the state's modern language requirement by exhibiting a modern language proficiency (at the intermediate level) equivalent to two years in high school or eight college credits in a single language. A standardized examination for modern language may be used to meet the requirement. Students who have previously received a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution are exempt from this requirement. |
|Note: Associate in Science (A.S.) degrees are designed to prepare graduates for immediate entry into their chosen career field. A.S. degree graduates may transfer into certain baccalaureate programs. Students planning to transfer to baccalaureate programs should consult with Student Affairs counselors, advisors or specialists to make sure required courses are taken and entry requirements are met for the college/university program of their choice. |
