The AAS in civil technology is an Associate+Bachelor’s degree program that prepares qualified students to enter and successfully complete a baccalaureate program in Civil Engineering Technology in the College of Applied Science and Technology. Students strengthen their skills by taking courses taught by NTID faculty.
These courses systematically address the preparatory challenges that deaf and hard-of-hearing students face upon entry to the majors in the College of Applied Science and Technology. The civil technology program capitalizes on courses offered through NTID’s Departments of Engineering Studies, English, and Science and Mathematics in order to prepare qualified students for entry to the baccalaureate program.
Students receive a comprehensive foundation in civil engineering fundamentals: engineering graphics, computer aided design applications, construction materials and methods, surveying, statics, strength of materials, and elements of building construction.
Upon successful completion of the AAS degree in civil technology, students enroll in the bachelor’s degree program in civil engineering technology.
ACT: Composite test score of 18 (20 Math, 16 Reading) or higher
English: Placement into a First Year Writing course, such as FYW: Writing Seminar (UWRT-150) or Critical Reading and Writing (UWRT-100).
Mathematics: Placement into NTID’s Advanced Math (NMTH-275) course or higher
Science: Readiness after a single NTID science course, Concepts of College Physics (NSCI-270), for entry into the College of Science Physics I (PHYS-111) course.
Students must graduate in good standing from NTID and have maintained a grade point average of 2.5 or better to enroll in the College of Applied Science and Technology. Transfer credit will be awarded for courses completed with a grade of B or better for courses coded “NCAD” and “NMTH” and a grade of C or better for other courses.
