Structural Technology


About the Program

The Structural Technology Certificate is a two-semester program that examines the engineering properties and testing of a variety of building materials; principles of analysis and design of concrete and steel structures; estimation of material quantity takeoffs and costs; engineering plans and specifications; and legal principles and contract documents for engineering construction projects. Steel detailing concepts are also addressed in structural steel design.

Students are eligible to enroll in the Structural Technology program only after the basic Civil Engineering Technology entry requirements are completed (the same requirements to enter the CET degree program), and any prerequisites for the individual courses within the certificate program are met. The certificate will meet the needs of students seeking a basic introduction to structural-related engineering projects as well as those who intend to pursue a degree.

Certificate curricula are reviewed and updated periodically in response to community and industry demands. The student is cautioned to discuss certificate choices and course selections with an Engineering Advisor before each registration cycle.

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.
