Civil Engineering Technology

Civil Engineering Technology

A.A.S. Degree (O,S)

Civil Engineering Technology is one of the broadest fields in the overall practice of engineering because its work is coordinated with so many other areas of engineering. The curriculum provides a broad base instructional program suitable to many aspects of the construction industry. The employment opportunities are extensive, varying and offer graduates numerous challenges in a growing technological society.

The program emphasizes practical applications in the areas of site development; route surveying & design; topographic drafting; hydraulics/hydrology; the selection, specification and testing of soils, concrete, asphalt, and other construction materials for the construction industry. The use of computers for CAD, data acquisition and analysis is integrated throughout the program preparing graduates for immediate productivity in the profession.

Graduates of the Civil Engineering Technology program may work as engineering technicians in offices of civil/surveying/structural/consulting engineering firms; local, state, and federal departments of natural resources; transportation/highway departments; material testing laboratories; and flood control and soil conservation agencies.
