Civil Engineering and Surveying Technology (CT)

CT 192. Experimental Course

Credits: 1-3
Typically Offered: ONDEMAND
An experimental course is one that is being tested to determine its suitability for inclusion in the course catalog. Testing may continue for two semesters, after which the course should be discontinued or approved through the established college procedures, assigned a permanent course number and title, and included in the master catalog.

CT 194. Independent Study

Credits: 1-3
Typically Offered: ONDEMAND
An independent study course is one designed jointly by the student and faculty member to address an advanced topic of particular interest to the student and in the instructor's field of expertise. The course, when developed, must be approved by the department chair as being relevant to the discipline and of sufficient rigor for the credits to be awarded.

CT 195. Service Learning

Credits: 1
Repeat Status: Repeatable up to 6.00 credits.
Typically Offered: ONDEMAND
Designed to increase off-campus community involvement and awareness of civic responsibility, Service Learning gives students the opportunity to earn up to six semester hours of college credit while pursuing volunteer activities that have positive impact in the community. Some examples of activities that may serve as vehicles for Service Learning include: volunteer work at non-profit organizations (e.g., Kiwanis, Lions, etc.); serving as unpaid interns in local and state government; and organizing and participating in activities that are beneficial to the community as a whole (e.g. spring clean-up drives, neighborhood watch programs, meals-on-wheels, etc.). Students interested in Service Learning should discuss options with their academic advisors and/or faculty in areas related to the proposed activity.

CT 196. Study Tour

Credits: 1-3
Typically Offered: ONDEMAND
Study Tour courses provide students with unique learning opportunities in locations, either foreign or domestic. These learning opportunities should be directly related to the academic field of study under which credits are to be awarded. Some students may not qualify for study tours if their travel abroad is restricted for legal reasons.

CT 197. Cooperative Education/Internship

Credits: 1-3
Repeat Status: Repeatable up to 6.00 credits.
Typically Offered: ONDEMAND
Cooperative education and internships provide students with real-world experience in business and industry as they explore careers or gain experience in chosen fields of study. The work experiences must be directly related to the discipline under which the credits are to be awarded.

CT 199. Special Topics

Credits: 1-3
Typically Offered: ONDEMAND
Special topics courses are developed by the faculty member to take advantage of unique learning opportunities that either are not repeatable (such as a presidential election) or address advanced topics not normally covered in the curriculum. Topics covered must be directly related to the discipline under which credits are to be awarded.

CT 228. Boundary and Cadastral Surveying

Credits: 3
Prerequisite: ENGL 125.
Typically Offered: FALL
Course topics include evolution of land records systems, cadastral systems, and the Public Land Survey System (PLSS).

CT 232. Water Management Technology

Credits: 4
Prerequisite: MATH 105 or MATH 107.
Typically Offered: SPRING
This course covers the fundamentals of water supply and distribution, water treatment processes, sanitary sewage and collection methods, sewage treatment and the environmental effects caused by improper water and sewage handling. Included in the course are topics on hydraulics, chemical and biological testing, water distribution and collection systems and water and sewage treatment facilities.

CT 250. Applied Statics and Mechanics of Materials

Credits: 3
Prerequisite: MATH 105 or MATH 107.
Typically Offered: FALL
Students study equilibrium of rigid-bodies and coplanar force systems, trusses, load tracing, centroids and centers of gravity, introduction to stress, strain, shear and bending moments, bending stress, shear stress and beam deflections, properties of materials, simple beam and column design, and connections.
