The Civil Engineering Technology program prepares the student for a career as a technician in the areas of design, surveying, construction and materials testing. This is designed to be a two-year degree program.
This program educates future engineering technicians to help design, construct and maintain our civil engineering infrastructure: bridges, roads, dams, culverts, airports and more. It is the Civil Engineering Technician, working as the eyes and ears for the engineer, who ensures that these infrastructure projects get built to last.
Career opportunities with this degree are with construction firms; surveying firms; consulting engineering firms; federal, state and local government agencies; materials testing labs and many other areas of the private sector that support the transportation industry.

This program is designed to start in the fall semester.
Students who desire to start in other semesters may be accepted, but may not graduate in four semesters due to the sequencing of coursework. If starting other than Fall, please contact the Civil Engineering Technology department.
