Civil Engineering & Architecture
Prerequisite: Principles of Engineering and Digital Electronics
Credit: 1
Grade Level: 11-12

The major focus of the Civil Engineering and Architecture course is a long-term project that involves the development of a local property site. As the students learn various aspects of civil engineering and architecture they apply it to the design and development of this property. The course provides freedom to model the real-world experiences that civil engineers and architects experience when developing property. In the development of the property students gain understanding in the areas of surveying, soil testing, water supply, waste disposal, heat flow, structural calculation, architectural style, and knowledge of building materials are used APPB based class. Students use Revit software from AutoDesk as a design tool. CEA gives students the opportunity to develop skills and understanding of course concepts through activity-, project-, and problem-based (APPB) learning that is also used in IED.
