About this Program

Men and women completing the Civil Engineering Technology program are prepared for employment in the civil engineering fields. Civil Engineering Technicians plan, design, monitor construction, and maintain public or private works systems with the collaboration and direction of engineers. They will gather preliminary data, plan, budget, survey, design, prepare construction documents, and administer contracts to provide safe and convenient facilities that include highways, bridges, airports, structures, water treatment and distribution systems, and waste water collection and treatment systems. Opportunities are available with state, county, city transportation departments, as well as consulting engineering firms. Students will learn graphic communication skills, advanced surveying techniques, and a variety of skills related to engineering technologies. Students will also be enrolled in general education classes selected to build a foundation for their technical courses. This AAS degree can allow students to continue their education in a number of baccalaureate programs at four-year institutions.
