Civil and Construction Engineering Technology

Civil and Construction Engineering Technology

The Civil and Construction Engineering Technology program prepares students for entry-level work with civil engineers, contractors, architects, and government agencies at the city, county, and state levels, as well as the public. Civil engineering technicians apply the principles of civil engineering technology and surveying technology in planning, designing, and overseeing construction and maintenance of structures and facilities. They do hands-on work and use high-tech equipment in various kinds of projects under the direction of engineering staff.

Several civil engineering scholarships and other scholarship opportunities are available to students in this program.
