After last year’s classes I had a general idea of what civil engineering was, but still wasn’t quite sure . Civil Engineering Measurements explain the first thing I ever saw that got me interested in engineering, blue prints and contour maps . When I went to my high school’s career fair junior year I talked to an architectural and engineering firm that had actually designed and constructed my high school’s campus . I asked them about what they do and they showed me the maps and technical drawings . To me it was the neatest thing in the world . Now, thanks to this class, I understand how that firm used contour maps, traversing, topography, and 3-wire leveling to figure out where all the buildings on campus should go . More specifically I know that traversing requires a lot of work including starting from a GPS point, leveling and starting up the station, turning angles, and finding the bearing, azimuth, and...
