Civil engineering technology (CET)
Civil engineering technicians perform functions in the control and layout of horizontal locations and vertical elevations for proposed construction of buildings, bridges, and transportation facilities. Their work includes preliminary and final surveys, assisting in design and detailing stage, or supervision of construction to maintain quality control.
The program prepares civil technicians for employment in industries dealing with the design and construction of highways, bridges, railroads, airports, water supply and distribution projects, and other projects ranging from small-scale construction jobs to those involving tremendous capital expenditures.
The associate degree program in civil engineering technology is accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050; Baltimore, Md., 21202. 410-347-7700.
Students choosing the surveying option can fulfill the requirements for an associate degree in CET while following the course curriculum listed and replacing CET 220, CET 312, CET 313, MET 245, and MET 252 with the following courses:
Surveying technology (SRVT)
Action is under way to drop the curriculum leading to an associate degree in surveying technology. An option in surveying has been created in civil engineering technology. Following administrative approval, the surveying technology program will be eliminated as a separate program. Individuals interested in pursuing a program in surveying should refer to the civil engineering technology surveying option.
Surveying is necessary for the planning, design, and layout of all major engineering projects. Surveys are used for subdivisions, buildings, bridges, railroads, highways, airports, canals, dams, irrigation and drainage projects, and in preparation of any kind of map.
Surveying technology graduates may seek employment in construction, as government surveyors (federal, state, county, and municipal), as engineering consultants, and as private surveyors.
Any person who goes into private practice must be licensed. This program, combined with the necessary work experience, will help individuals qualify to take the Registered Land Surveyors Examination.
This option allows students to obtain an associate degree in surveying while enhancing their degree with additional course work in the area of geographic information systems. This option addresses a rapidly increasing need for technicians familiar with the GIS technology.
GIS is a computer-based mapping system that stores, integrates, and analyzes information about land aspects. GIS technology is currently being used in tax mapping; resource management; routing of emergency vehicles, delivery vans, and trucks; facilities management; planning; management of transportation systems and utility networks; legislative reapportionment; and monitoring environmental hazards. Completing the additional hours of this option will enhance a student's job opportunities.
Students choosing the GIS option can fulfill the requirements by completing the course curriculum listed for surveying technology as well as the following courses:
This would reduce the required additional hours beyond the associate degree in surveying technology to 16 semester hours.
Bachelor of science in land information technology (LIT)
The curriculum leading to a B.S. in land information technology is being discontinued. Following administrative approval, both the surveying technology and land information technology programs will be eliminated. Students interested in a surveying program should look at the surveying option of the civil engineering technology program.
The land information technology degree is a +2 program that expands the associate degree in surveying technology or other related fields. It is the first bachelor's degree in Kansas to incorporate modern surveying and mapping technology such as global positioning systems, GIS, photogrammetry, and other advanced topics in surveying and land information.
Course work in this bachelor's degree program provides additional depth of study dealing with subdivision design, network adjustment, map projection, engineering database, remote sensing, and projects in GPS and photogrammetry.
Action is under way to modify the associate degree in computer information systems technology. Students will not be accepted into the computer information systems technology degree program, effective for the 2000-2001 academic year. The computer science technology degree will accommodate students wanting a computer information technology emphasis.
The computer information systems technology curriculum emphasizes algorithmic design skills to develop fundamental problem-solving skills in multiple computer programming languages. Structured programming provides the tools for solving problems in practical computer applications.
