OverviewThis course represents a comprehensive coverage of applying graphics and computer tools to enhance professional
engineering communication. All aspects of technical and geometric specifications of Civil Engineering drawings
and their representation in technical reports and high standard presentations are addressed. The course
includes detailed instruction in engineering graphics and professional communication in terms of presenting and
technical report writing but also includes the basic elements of effective correspondence in terms of
electronic communication and effective technical communication skills in both oral and written forms.

Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits are converted to semester credits/quarter units differently among U.S. universities. Students should confirm the conversion scale used at their home university when determining credit transfer.
Please reference fall and spring course lists as not all courses are taught during both semesters.
Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
