Associate Degree

About the Program

Civil Engineering Technology graduates play a major role in the design and construction of airports, bridges, highways, pipelines, and water and sewage systems. They can become professionally licensed land surveyors, steel detailers, construction superintendents, civil engineering technologists and technicians, engineering design assistants, cost estimators and public works technicians. To perform this work, civil engineering technicians must possess knowledge and skills in such technical areas as surveying, construction materials and cost estimating, structures, hydraulics, project management and use of computers.

This program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, See the program's Outcomes Assessment Plan and Process.

Learning experiences for students in Engineering Technology programs are provided at the Northeast Campus in classrooms and state-of-the-art labs in the Engineering Technology and Science Classroom Building.
