    Course Length: 1 semester
    Course Description:
    This is a Project Lead the Way Course. The major focus of the Civil Engineering and Architecture (CEA) course is a long-term project that involves the development of a local property site. As students learn about various aspects of civil engineering and architecture, they apply what they learn to the design and development of this property. The course is structured to enable all students to have a variety of experiences that will provide an overview of both fields. Students work in teams, exploring hands-on projects and activities to learn the characteristics of civil engineering and architecture. Students will use Revit software to help them develop solutions to meet numerous requirements for their project. Students learn about documenting their project, solving problems, and communicating their solutions to their peers and members of the professional civil engineering and architecture community.
