70615-70616 Civil Engineering and Architecture Grades 11 12 1 credit
Civil Engineering and Architecture (CEA) is appropriate for students interested in careers related to civil engineering and architecture. The major focus of the CEA course is to expose students to the design and construction practices of residential and commercial building projects, design teams and teamwork, communication methods, building codes and ordinances, engineering design calculations, and technical documentation. Problem solving skills and design experience are gained through an activity-projectproblem-based (APPB) teaching and learning pedagogy. Used in combination with a teaming approach, APPB-learning challenges students to continually hone their interpersonal skills and creative abilities while applying math, science, and technology knowledge learned in other courses to solve design problems and communicate their solutions.
