About this course
The Civil Engineering Technology Program is designed to prepare students for immediate employment with architectural firms, engineering consulting firms, construction management firms, surveyors, contracting firms, residential builders, and with federal, state, county, and city governments. The diverse curriculum allows for students to gain specialized training for careers in architecture, construction, facility management, and surveying. Graduates may also transfer directly to a bachelor’s degree program in Civil Engineering Technology, Construction Technology, Surveying, or Architecture.
The Department of Civil Engineering Technology’s mission is to provide a quality learning opportunity within Civil Engineering Technology department and to prepare students to further their education at a four-year institution and/or employment in the field of engineering technology. Graduates will be able to:
(1) Solve technical problems typical of those encountered in civil engineering technology careers using creativity, current technology and the principles of mathematics and applied science;
(2) perform and evaluate standard field testing and laboratory experiments, interpret and report on the results, and make recommendations for improvement in methods or materials;
(3) work and communicate effectively in a diverse multi-disciplinary team in an industrial or academic setting; and (4) understand the need to pursue lifelong learning for personal and professional growth.
