CEA- Civil Engineering and Architecture
The major focus of the Civil Engineering and ArchitectureTM (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 provides freedom to the teacher and students to develop
the property as a simulation or to students to model the real-world experiences
that civil engineers and architects experience when developing property.
The CEA course is intended to serve as a specialization course within
the Project Lead The Way® sequence. 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.
In addition, students use Revit, which is a state of the art 3D design software package
from AutoDesk, to help them design solutions to solve their major course project.
Students learn about documenting their project, solving problems,
and communicating their solutions to their peers and members of the professional
community of civil engineering and architecture.As students, using the AutoCAD programs of Revit 2020, you are able to download this program
to your home computer by going to the Autodesk web site and finding the education downloads.
This is free to you and the student with a 3 year licensing. This enables you to work from home by transporting your files with a flash drive.
