Students pursuing an online degree in civil engineering technology, both on the Associate's and Bachelor's degrees levels, will take similar courses. However, those pursuing a Bachelor's degree will take more classes and go into more detail in civil engineering technology. Students may begin with a technology orientation, technical science, basic surveying, technical mathematics, engineering economy, and land surveying. Students may move onto engineering materials, engineering mechanics, topographic drawing and surveying, mechanics of materials, introduction to micro compressors, concrete, and earthwork. Other possible classes include geodetic surveying, reinforced concrete design, computer applications, structural steel design, fluid mechanics, introduction to programming, highway construction and design, organizational behavior, analytic geometry and calculus, and business and technical writing. Students may also complete a resident laboratory training.
