Graphic Design Education – 2 or 4 Year Degree, year technical


Graphic Design Education: Two-Year or Four-Year Degree

Year technical degree

Graphic design is probably as old as man himself; the cave writings in Lascaux, France are 15,000 (or more) year old graphic designs. Illuminated manuscripts from the Medieval Period are graphic designs. Anything that uses pictures and symbols to communicate something is a graphic design.

In the last half of the twentieth century, graphic design moved from the drafting table to the computer. During this time of transition, computer skills were more important than design skills. Computerized graphic design programs were complicated and difficult for most people to use. If you were computer savvy, you could learn enough about design to find employment as a graphic designer without post-secondary education.

That s no longer true. In the 21st century, most people have some computer skills and graphic design programs are easier to use. The pendulum is swinging back toward the artistic expression of graphic design and it s very difficult to get a job as a graphic artist without at least some college education.

There are many types of graphic design educational programs available certificate programs, associate degree programs, bachelor s degree programs and graduate programs. All of these programs have their pros and cons. The one that s best for you is the one that will enable you to meet your career goals. This article will compare several features of associate and bachelor s degree programs in order to help you choose the best program for you.

Cost: An associate degree program costs less than a bachelor s degree program. Partly, that is because you are paying for fewer years of education.

If you get your associate degree at a community college, the cost per credit will be lower than at any four-year college or university. (That may not be true of an associate degree program from a career or technical college.)

There are other less obvious cost advantages to an associate degree program, too. You can usually find one close to where you live, so you don t have relocation or campus housing expenses. Two years less education also means two years less book and other fees. And it means two years less lost work time.

Career path: You ll begin your career faster with an associate degree, and you ll probably qualify for the same jobs that a bachelor s degree graduate qualifies for.

There will probably come a time, however, when an associate degree graduate hits a career dead end; a point where you cannot advance any further without getting more education. Advanced professional positions and positions in management and education are usually closed to associate degree graduates.

Because they can advance further in their careers, bachelor s degree graphic designers usually have higher lifetime earnings than those with associate degrees. The more education you have, the more money you are likely to earn.

Professional status: Unfairly and unfortunately, there is a negative stigma attached to having only an associate degree. Some employers believe that the best and brightest, most talented and smartest will attend a four year school and that if you didn t you are less than the best. It s not an accurate evaluation and it s not fair, but it is reality. If you have an associate degree and you are competing head-to-head with someone with a bachelor s degree, there s a good chance the job or project will go to the other guy. All other things being equal, education wins every time.

An associate degree program is usually focused and concentrates on skill acquisition, rather than developing a broad educational base. You can graduate with an associate degree and be a very good, very skilled, very talented graphic artist but you do not have the scope of education that someone with a bachelor s degree does. All of those core educational courses in a bachelor s program are designed to broaden your mind and help you develop personally as well as professionally.

Perhaps most importantly, a bachelor s degree in graphic design gives you better tools for communicating with other professionals. Graphic design is all about communication, and being able to speak the language of other professional people is a distinct advantage.

You could choose a career path that begins with an associate degree, planning to get a bachelor s degree later. There are some good reasons to do this:

  • It costs less if you plan right.
  • You can establish yourself in your career quickly, and get your bachelor s degree before you re ready for more advanced positions.

If you do plan to get a bachelor s degree later in your career, make sure that your associate degree classes will transfer to a four-year school. Some programs are not transferable and some others may only be partially transferable. You don t want to put the time and money into getting an associate degree and then have to start all over at the beginning when you are ready to pursue your bachelor s degree.

Whether you choose an associate degree or a bachelor s degree program, you ll enter an exciting, challenging profession that is continuing to evolve as new technologies become available. Graphic design is increasingly a part of our visually focused world, and as a result graphic artists are increasingly in demand. As a graphic designer you can work in almost any industry or you can develop your own business. Look at your career goals and at your personal situation and choose the program that will help you get where you want to be, that will help you achieve your professional goals.

Civil Engineering Degree Programs Guide, technical engineering degree.#Technical #engineering #degree


Civil Engineering Degrees Programs

Associates and Bachelors of Engineering Degrees

Masters and Doctorate of Engineering Degrees


Technical engineering degree

Civil Engineering Degrees Programs

During the first few years of undergraduate study, you ll be building a foundation for your career. You ll be taking a host of classes in math, science, and engineering. In your junior or senior year of study, you ll be introduced to the principles of analysis and design. Some of the specific classes include structural engineering and transportation engineering. Classes for graduate degrees tend to get even more specific, and involve specific test case scenarios within civil engineering.

Online Civil Engineering Degree Options

Online learning options are available for a civil engineering degree at nearly every degree level. Many civil engineers looking to advance their career will decide on pursuing an online Master s in Civil Engineering, a Master s in Project Management, or an MBA with some sort of engineering focus. Online courses offer flexibility for the working professional or the student who prefers more autonomy. Online learning is preferred by many people considering civil engineering.

Civil Engineers Wages Salary

Types of Civil Engineering Degrees

There are many subcategories of civil engineering be sure to check with you the university engineering department to figure out which one might be best for you. Some of the most popular areas of concentration in the field of civil engineering are highlighted below.

Structural Engineering Degree

Structural engineering focuses on the building of non-building structures (non-building structures are defined as structures that lack occupancy bridges, aqueducts, dams, water culverts, railroads, roads, and tunnels are a few examples). Structural engineering is one of the oldest forms of civil engineering and has been around for hundreds of years. Structural engineering jobs tend to be in high demand due to the necessity of non-building structures no matter what the population is.

Construction Engineering Management Degree

Those interested in the building of residential or commercial building structures tend to go down the construction management engineering degree route. The principles of structural engineering are similar to a structural engineer, but focused on the building of homes, houses, or office buildings. Most projects are shorter term (relatively speaking) depending on the size of the building. Career options for construction engineering managers tend to go up or down depending on the housing and commercial building vertical.

Environmental Engineering Degree

Civil engineers interested in focusing on solving environmental issues tend to focus on an environmental engineering route. Helping design better water systems, purification systems, or reducing waste within a construction site would be a few tasks. Read more on environmental engineering degrees here.

Architectural Engineering Degree

Like structural engineering and construction engineering, architectural engineering focuses on the building of structures. Architectural engineering, however, tends to focus more on the aesthetic side of the structure. This is not only focused on looks, however sometimes architectural engineers need to design new structures that fit into an era of construction. Revamping many the downtown area of a Victorian-style town, for instance, would likely require the expertise of an architectural engineer. Check out our more detailed article on architectural engineering degrees.

Engineering Project Management Degree

Nearly every engineer works with a project manager, but project managers are a necessity and most common within civil engineering. This is why many civil engineers continue their education with a Bachelor s or Master s in Project Management. Their technical civil expertise combined with the education on managing projects helps make them an excellent option as a project manager. Project managers help work with multiple processes, companies, and engineering specialties (architects, drafters, structural engineers, electricians, etc.) to complete large projects. Below are a few options for online project management degrees.

Additional Civil Engineering Degree Concentrations

These are just a few areas of concentration, but they are some of the most common areas. Inquire with your college of choice to find the best field of study for you.

  • Engineering Management
  • Drafting
  • Surveying
  • Geotechnical Engineering
  • Roads, Bridges, and Infrastructure
  • Buildings and Structures
  • Transportation Engineering

Civil Engineering Schools to Consider

If you are interested in this field of study, you ll want to get the best education possible to avoid lawsuits and harm to another person s life. Here are several universities that offer civil engineering degrees.

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign This school is preferred by students because it s affordable and has a low student teacher ratio. The college also graduates 68 percent of the students it accepts.

Georgia Institute of Technology Georgia Institute of Technology is one of the most selective schools in terms of civil engineering. It is a popular school that is affordable and prepares students well for their careers int the future.

University of California Berkeley This school has the most selective acceptance process available. It is one of the best schools available, however. Though it s more expensive than others on the list, it is still relatively affordable and offers a quality civil engineering education.

Purdue University If you want an near equal mix of men and women, try enrolling in Purdue. They have a great program at an affordable price. The in-state costs are some of lowest. The quality of education is high, and the students excel after graduating from the school.

Stanford University Stanford is a private institution with a near equal male-to-female ratio. The university is private so the cost of the education is almost four times of the most affordable colleges.

Civil Engineering Courses and Classes

Classes in civil engineering generally teach prospective civil engineers about reducing air, water, and soil pollution, particularly within an environmental concentration of civil engineering. They learn how to develop alternative energy sources and improve congested transportation systems. They will also work to prevent or minimize natural disasters. The degree prepares them work for consulting forms, government agencies, or construction sites.

There a several classes that a student may take in the industry. The classes may include:

  • Introduction to Civil Engineering
  • Environmental Engineering Design
  • Civil Engineering Materials Laboratory
  • Uncertainty in Engineering
  • Project Evaluation
  • Project Management
  • Frameworks and Models in Systems Engineering
  • Engineering Mechanics
  • Masters of Engineering Concepts

These classes are designed to prepare students for the design world and give them the foundation they need to become successful in their field of study.

Civil Engineering Careers

Civil engineers can work in a variety of fields. They can be engineering managers on construction sites, or they can work for consulting firms. Many civil engineers obtain their professional engineering licenses and design in their own firms after they gain experience. There is a a lot of liability. So, it s important to have the licensing in place to practice. Civil engineers may also work in government jobs, which means more job security. We have an extensive write-up of the job description and career choices for a civil engineer here.

The South Carolina Teaching and Certification Resource

The traditional pathway to South Carolina teacher certification is completing a bachelor s degree that includes a teacher preparation program. The South Carolina Department of Education oversees the certification process, which is outlined below to help you learn how to become a teacher in South Carolina.

Additionally, prospective teachers must complete an approved South Carolina teacher preparation program, which is typically included in the bachelor s degree curriculum for traditional route educators.

If you already hold a bachelor s degree but did not complete a teacher preparation program, you may be eligible for licensure under one of the alternative teacher certification routes in South Carolina .

South Carolina uses a tiered license structure for educators. Those who meet the minimum certification requirements above are eligible for the Initial Certificate. Candidates may then complete continuing education to advance the license. Advanced certificate classifications in the state are as follows:

  • Bachelor s +18. This certificate is granted to those who hold a bachelor s degree and have completed 18 credit hours of graduate coursework within seven years.
  • Master Degree. The Master Degree certificate recognizes those who have a master s degree in an acceptable academic or professional field .

Out-of-state programs must hold accreditation from one of the six regional accreditation agencies overseen by the US Department of Education. Out-of-state schools offering online programs must be accredited by one of the six regional accreditation agencies and be approved by that state s teacher licensing authority as well as that state s Board of Education for the preparation of teachers. You can read more about program approval requirements here .

Expert Advice on Vocational Education in Houston

To get a better understanding of Houston’s economic growth, RWM.org spoke with Bob Mitchell, President of the Bay Area Houston Economic Partnership and Terry Higginbotham of Workforce Solutions. The core focus of the Bay Area Houston Economic Partnership is bringing primary jobs to the region. The organization has 270 funding members across 14 cities in two counties and will be celebrating its 40 th anniversary in December. Workforce Solutions is a public workforce system and an affiliate of the Gulf Coast Workforce Board contracted to help employers meet workforce needs and residents build careers, so both can compete in a global economy.

About The Expert

Bob Mitchell is President of the Bay Area Houston Economic Partnership. He has a 34 years of experience in economic development, process controls and manufacturing management in the Houston region.

Terry Higginbotham is a business consultant at Workforce Solutions. He graduated with a degree in Business Management.

What is the economic outlook in Houston?

Mitchell: The job market continues to grow rapidly. In fact, the economy is growing faster in the Houston region than any other area in Texas. With that said, we’d like it to grow even more quickly. Although there has been a recent downturn in the energy industry, other industries such as specialty chemical, health care, maritime and aerospace continue to make strides.

The region ranks #2 nationally for the city with the most Fortune 500 companies, 47 percent of all specialty chemical stock is produced in Houston and the region produces 60 percent of the country’s gasoline. The maritime industry is especially strong and the Port of Houston was named the #1 export port for the United States, outpacing New York.

Higginbotham: Houston is a gateway for trade to Mexico, Canada and expanding markets of Latin America. Economic strategists identify Houston as one of the most robust and dynamic economies in the world. The common theme by Greater Houston Partnership is, “Houston is ready-made for business success,” and has become the driving force for continuing growth.

What are some of the top employers in Houston?

Mitchell: Major employers can be found across all industries, ranging from energy to health care. However, some of the biggest include Johnson Space Center, Texas Medical Center, Exxon, Shell, Mobile, Haliburton, Bay Port Industrial Complex, and specialty chemical companies such as Dow Chemical and Lubrizol.

Higginbotham: Some of the major employers in the region include Shell Oil, Hewlett-Packard, JP Morgan Chase, Centerpoint Energy, Kroger Company, H.E.B. Foods, Memorial Hermann Health System, Aramark Corp, and Pappas Restaurants.

How is Houston attracting new industries?

Higginbotham: Houston’s geographic area provides convenience to industry and attracts investors who want to expand operations to the Gulf Coast Region.

  • Location: Optimal communications throughout the United States based on Central Time Zone; one hour behind East Coast and two hours ahead of West Coast. Basically midway point between both East and West Coasts; can reach destination by air in a couple of hours.
  • Seaport: Port of Houston offers worldwide access as well as three other seaports within the region.
  • Airport: Two major airports for passenger air cargo operations. Ellington Airport, Houston Airport System, has letter of intent with a major corporation for potential spaceport.
  • Weather: Climate allows for year-round outdoor activities.
  • Taxes Incentives: State Incentives such as Texas Enterprise Fund, Skills Development Fund, etc. Local Incentives such as Property Tax Abatement, Employer Tax Credits, Foreign Trade Zones, etc.

Why is Houston an attractive location for students?

Mitchell: Houston is a technology hub that revolves around technology and engineering. The educational institutions in the region provide engineering degree opportunities. In addition to the University of Houston and Embry Riddle, the region is also home to the University of St. Thomas, Texas Southern University, Houston Baptist University, and more. In short, professional opportunities in the region are closely aligned with educational opportunities and providers.

Higginbotham: The Greater Houston Partnership developed UpSkill Houston, a comprehensive, industry-led approach to bridge the gap and fill jobs in middle-skills occupations. UpSkill Houston is an innovative blueprint for leaders from the business community, educational institutions and social service organizations to utilize as we lead this effort to build a quality workforce.

Why would you recommend someone move to Houston?

Mitchell: Houston has a strong economic environment and is an international city with a global economy. For example, it is home to the second largest number of embassies in the US (only behind New York). It has a business friendly climate, continues to grow, and is an affordable area to live, attend school and work. There are plenty of recreational activities for families and individuals alike the region has the second-largest recreational boating industry in the country.

Higginbotham: Houston is identified as “A City With No Limits” and highly multicultural with 105 different languages spoken. Here are other reasons it’s a great place to live.

  • Cost of Living: Third lowest overall among nation’s most populated metropolitan areas.
  • Affordable Housing: Cost about 36% below average.
  • Health Care: Texas Medical Center is the largest medical complex in the world with 54 world-renowned medical research and academic institutions.

Early Childhood Special Education

What is Early Intervention?

Supports and services delivered to infants and toddlers from birth through age three who are not developing as expected or who have a medical condition that can delay normal development. Early intervention supports and services focus on increasing the child’s participation in family and community activities that are important to the family. In addition, supports and services focus on helping parents and other caregivers know how to find ways to help the child learn during everyday activities. These supports and services are available for all eligible children and their families regardless of the family’s ability to pay.

Early Intervention Services are provided by the local Infant Toddler Connection program .

What is Early Childhood Special Education?

Services delivered to preschool aged children from age two (whose birthday falls on or before September 30) through five who experience a disability and require special education. Educators, along with the child’s family, develop an individualized education program (IEP) with goals and objectives to meet the child’s developmental needs. The goals and objectives include a variety of skills and/or activities for the child to learn and use consistently.

Early Childhood Special Education (Part B of IDEA) and Early Intervention (Part C of IDEA), in Virginia, provide services for children from birth to Kindergarten age who qualify according to state and federal law. All localities in the state have services available for children in this age group who are eligible.

Early Intervention services are provided for infants and toddlers with a disability. Infant and toddler with a disability means a child who is eligible to receive services in the Part C early intervention system up to age three who:

  • has delayed functioning;
  • manifests atypical development or behavior;
  • has behavioral disorders that interfere with acquisition of developmental skills; or
  • has a diagnosed physical or mental condition that has a high probability of resulting in delay, even though no current delay exists. COV § 2.1-760; 34 CFR § 303.16 (a).

Preschool aged children from age two (whose birthday falls on or before September 30) through five with a disability may be found eligible for Early Childhood Special Education services under one or more of 14 disability categories, which are defined in the federal and state regulations:

  • autism
  • deaf-blind
  • emotional disability
  • hearing impairment
  • learning disability
  • intellectual disability
  • multiple disabilities
  • orthopedic impairment
  • other health impairment
  • speech or language impairment
  • traumatic brain injury
  • visual impairment / blindness
  • developmental delay

The long term goal for our preschool aged children is for them to be as ready as possible to enter kindergarten. The earlier services are provided for children with disabilities, the better the long term prognosis. Children with special needs who have experienced support early in life do better in future settings.

Smooth transitions from early intervention to early childhood special education and then into Kindergarten are important. Families, children, sending, and receiving programs all need to share information and support each other. Transition activities need to be timely to assure access to appropriate services for the child. The transition should also be smooth and seamless between programs, people, and services.

Early Childhood Special Education services are provided by local school divisions. Local school divisions’ Special Education Departments should be contacted for specific information about their programs see the public school division directory .

Additional resources are available for Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) leaders responsible for administrative oversight of local ECSE programs. The Leadership in Effective And Developmentally-appropriate Services in ECSE (LEADS) website provides consistent information statewide to improve the collection, reporting, and use of ECSE indicator data; and connect, support, and empower local leaders to build capacity and provide high-quality programs and services throughout the state for young children ages 2-5 years with IEPs.
