Civil Engineering Technology

[Stewart Moore]

(Associate of Applied Science)

Civil Engineering Technology prepares a person for positions in the civil engineering field. The curriculum includes surveying, principles of road construction, and general construction practices.

The graduate is trained to work with the civil engineer in the performance of general engineering practices which may include design; drawing and interpreting working drawings; determining equipment, materials and labor required to complete a project; and performing soils, asphalt, and concrete tests required for foundations and construction. Up-to-date equipment usage is stressed, including the surveying computer. Students successfully completing program will receive degrees in Associate of Applied Science.
