Info

LAST UPDATED  2/9/2020

VIP!!!!!   EARLY SIGN-UPS: Students are strongly advised to ALWAYS register 6-10 weeks early every semester to avoid being put on a wait-list when courses over-fill OR to avoid early administrative cancellation of a course due to low enrollment in courses!!! 

Administrative course cancellation begins 3-4 weeks prior to the first day of the semester. Courses that appear under-enrolled (below 18 students) can be canceled. If a student is somewhat interested or somewhat undecided on a course, it is recommended to sign up anyway to preserve your option to choose at a later time. Once canceled, there is no bringing a canceled course back when you later decide that you want to sign up.

CESGT $HOLARSHIP$: next to my office door students will find CESGT SCHOLARSHIP information -- this is FREE MONEY, Check it carefully and often. Approximate 2019/2020 dates shown below and will be updated upon the release of 2019-2020 dated materials). Please investigate their websites BUT DO NOT CALL THEM with questions or application requests. The scholarships are administered through the CESGT Program. Application requirements vary but ALL applicants must ALREADY BE REGISTERED in the CESGT Program and taking classes.  Again, please look up the web pages and read the application requirements.

CA Dept. of Transportation Education Foundation annual scholarship for Land Surveyors and Civil Engineering students -- posted every Fall semester (Awarded)
California Land Surveyors Association (CLSA) Scholarship (state and Sonoma Chapter) applications posted 10/2019 due by 12/2019 (AWARDED)

IMPORTANT DEVELOPMENTS: CESGT PROGRAM CURRICULUM & COURSE SEQUENCE

In 2016 SRJC revamped the Civil Engineering, Surveying and Geospatial Technologies (CESGT) Program from  2-year to 1-year certificate cycles. This should not be considered a dilution of the historical rigor for which this program has become nationally recognized. Students may complete one or more "stackable" certificates, each with a more focused emphasis. Multiple certificates approach much of the 2-year  program content. Minor changes will likely be ongoing. Please monitor the certificate web pages.

The Geospatial (GIS) Program curriculum is still being revised AGAIN over the 2020-2021 academic year. Fewer courses may be offered. Some courses such as GIS 40 (Fall and Spring) and GIS 54 (Spring) will continue to be offered provided they fill.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING INFO CAREFULLY.
The Fall 2020 Semester will be undergoing some revisions so please consult the program coordinator for how to best select courses that will qualify for certificate status.

PLEASE NOTE: Creating and updating new-technology based programs such as this is a dynamic process with many bureaucratic steps and review committees. THINGS WILL CHANGE and sometimes abruptly. STUDENTS WILL DO WELL TO BE ADAPTABLE. WHEN IN DOUBT -- ASK ME. You may not like the answer but you will then be informed. IF YOU DONT ASK, YOU DON'T GET

__________________________
SPECIAL NOTE & PERSONAL COMMENT:

First off, I am a first name kind of guy so I go by Reg. Professor and Mr. are NOT necessary.

Secondly, NEW and CONTINUING students in the program should not wait until the last minute to plan for their certificates or associate degrees. Read your course syllabi. Consult program websites. Consult program coordinators and instructors. Learn where the Applied Technology Administrative Offices are in Analy Village. Learn where and when my office hours are held and make an appointment or email me WELL IN ADVANCE OF YOUR PERCEIVED EMERGENCY!! 

Once you are enrolled and in one of my classes, nstall VSEE or Zoom on your computer, tablet or cell phone. Use it to web-conference with me and your student peers. Students are legally viewed as adults by the school district and the state chancellor's office. It is the STUDENT'S RESPONSIBILITY to stay on top of their degree planning. The school provides information, online forms in your cubby and people to consult with. The school does NOT chase after students to get things done. College education and university transfer are serious business. Career Technical Education is serious. This is YOUR education and YOUR career. In order to succeed in either or at both, YOU will have to do YOUR share of the work. Please consider this carefully and take ownership of your success.

_______________________________
OFFICE HOURS AND AVAILABILITY

My office is located in Analy Village, Building D, Room 630. You may also contact me by email or if really urgent, via my cell phone.

Lastly, I also currently serve as CESGT Program coordinator and Department Chair Designee, this is a busy job with lots of meetings and behind the scenes work to do. A student may report a few moments early to a listed classroom or to my listed office hours to not find me in my office. I might be making copies or submitting one of ten zillion forms required for existence in our nearby administrative offices across the parking lot. DO NOT assume that I am not available. Prior to assuming incorrectly, students may call my cell phone (707) 246-6960 and confirm their intent to meet and my whereabouts. I may only be seconds or minutes away. RP
