This course is an introduction to the techniques of drawing for three-dimensional spatial relationships, 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.
The purpose of this course is to help drafting students develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to work at an entry-level job in such positions as CAD technician trainee, CAD system operator or CAD technician. This course is designed for students who have already received in-depth training in one or more application areas. Lab fee required.
This course is a three-dimensional CAD course which introduces the student to Autodesk Revit Software. The student learns to work with architectural computer models rather than the basic geometric drawing approach. The Revit platform for building information modeling is a complete design and documentation solution which supports all phases of design, drawing production and schedule development for a given project. This software allows the student to work in various views of the parametric building model at the same time.
This course is a study of the drawing and design techniques related to the production of mechanical (HVAC), electrical and plumbing drawings. CAD and Revit software may be implemented in the production of these drawings. 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 will be covered. 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 will continue to prepare the student for the field of engineering technology and/or a related science. The course will focus on specialized, practical knowledge related to more advanced mathematical, scientific or technical aspects of mathematics, science and engineering. Relationships between external forces and action of members of a structure will be covered. Topics include stress, shear, moment, deflections, column and beam connections and Mohr’s Circle.
In this course the student will use everything previously learned in the program to plan a related engineering problem or project. The student will be responsible for planning the basic design, material selection, structural analysis and related calculations, etc. Project must be approved by faculty advisor. The student will produce a formal oral presentation. This course must be completed with a grade of "C" or higher.
This course provides a review of the ANSI standards of federal project management including the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) standards (and its nine project management knowledge areas and five project processes) and other applicable standards. The course will also introduce the concept of Earned Value Management as defined in the ANSI A748 document. All federal projects in excess of $50M must be managed using certified EVM management systems.
This course provides an overview of the theory and practice of managing projects within various organizational structures. The fundamental building blocks of project management are addressed with special emphasis on the triple constraint. Students gain a solid understanding and foundation to successfully manage each phase of the project life cycle, work within organizational and cost constraints, set goals linked directly to stakeholder needs and utilize proven project management tools to complete the project on time and within budget. The key management aspects and proven techniques that differentiate project management from other types of management are fully addressed.
Managing the human elements of project management is as challenging as mastering the technical aspects. Innovative approaches are employed to successfully motivate, communicate, negotiate and resolve conflicts among the team members and stakeholders. In this course students develop an understanding of the individual, the group and the project team. Proven techniques to make conflict a constructive rather than a destructive experience are discovered. Students develop effective communication, negotiation and conflict resolution skills to successfully lead both domestic and global projects.
Quality management ensures that project deliverables meet pre-determined criteria. Methods for quality management are studied including quality planning, assurance and control. Risk management is the systematic process of identifying, analyzing, evaluating and controlling project risks. Both qualitative and quantitative risk analyses are conducted and strategies for proactive risk aversion and reactive risk response are developed. Procurement management is the acquisition of direct project scope and auxiliary services from outside the business unit or organization. Methods for procurement management are studied including planning, solicitation, selection and contract administration.
In this comprehensive course, students will build statements of work and work breakdown structures, make activity and resourcing decisions, set timelines and utilize scheduling and resource allocation methods. Risk management methods will also be used in working as groups to create and manage project plans. Techniques will be appropriate for large and small projects within commercial, academic or non-profit organizations.
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.
