Info

LAST UPDATED  7/16/2019

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 FOUR 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 SCHOLARSHIPS: to the LEFT of 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)

CESGT JOB BOARD: to the RIGHT of my office door is a CESGT JOB BOARD that contains current and historical job information. The SRJC CESGT Program has a long history of successful university transfer and highly successful (~75%) board exam performance. For the last three years, 95-100% of graduating program students have been employed by the end of the program. Check it carefully and often.

FALL 2019 NOTES / UPDATES:

1.) Over the summer. the Engineering and Applied Technology Department will be moving FROM Shuhaw Hall TO Jeff Kunde Hall (across the street) to allow for the demolition and replacement of Shuhaw Hall to the new Lindley Hall Science Complex. Jeff Kunde Hall is STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION. Our move-in date is the week before classes start. We should expect some minor hiccups and be ready to adapt -- that is just the way it is.

Additionally, department faculty offices will be moved on 8/16 and 8/17 FROM Shuhaw Hall to Analy Village. My office will be in Analy Village, Building D, Room 630. So the first couple of weeks in the Fall 2019 semester may be problematic -- students and instructors must be ready to adapt.

IMPORTANT DEVELOPMENTS: CESGT PROGRAM CURRICULUM & COURSE SEQUENCE

SRJC has completed revamping the Civil Engineering, Surveying and Geospatial Technologies (CESGT) Program from a 2-year to a 1-year certificate cycle. This should not be considered a dilution of the historical rigor for which this program has become nationally recognized. The curriculum is being revised with less inter-certificate overlap so that students may complete one or more "stackable" certificates, each with a more focused emphasis. Minor changes will likely occur over the next 1-2 years. Please monitor the certificate web pages.

PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING INFO CAREFULLY.

The Fall 2020 Semester may be undergoing some minor revisions so please consult the program coordinator for how to best select courses that will qualify for certificate status. These are the planned 2018-2109 FALL and SPRING Certificate Courses as they now stand:

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 Bussman Service Center. Learn where and when my office hours are held and make an appointment or email me WELL IN ADVANCE OF YOUR PERCEIVED EMERGENCY!! 
 

Install VSEE (link below) on your computer, tablet or cell phone. Use it to web-conference with me. 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

UNTIL 8/17/2019, My office is located in SHUHAW 1775 and my office phone is (707) 527-4376. After 8/17, my office will be 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, 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
