Civil Engineering Technology A.A.S.

A40140

The Civil Engineering Technology curriculum provides the application of relevant theory of engineering needed by technicians to carry out planning and supervisory tasks in the construction of transportation systems, residential and commercial buildings, bridges, dams, and water and wastewater treatment systems.

Coursework includes the communication and computational skills required to support the fields such as materials testing, structures, estimating, project management, hydraulics, environmental technology, and surveying. Additional coursework will cover the operation of computers and application software including computer-aided drafting.

Graduates should qualify for technician-level jobs with both public and private engineering, construction, and surveying agencies. Students should consult their advisor for information about course scheduling.

Upon successful completion of this program, the student should be able to:

  • Demonstrate ability to properly set up Total Station Surveying Instrument to measure angles and distances
  • Identify and analyze the key Geometric Design Elements associated with highway design
  • Work effectively and appropriately with others through collaboration and teamwork (GE V.6)
  • Use written and oral discussion to discover and to articulate ideas (GE I.1)
