Get the advanced technical training you need to join a construction or surveying team as a civil engineering technician. This Associate in Applied Science degree (certificate and diploma options also available) draws individuals who are interested in the basic principles of engineering, mathematics, and science — and who are excited at the prospect of applying those principles to land development and public works projects through tasks like structural testing, site analysis, and project management.

Multi-Setting Learning
Individuals enrolled in the Civil Engineering Technology program have the advantage of learning and training in a variety of class settings. Students will conduct field testing on engineering materials one day and interpret tests in the lab the next. Each setting reflects the diverse range of communication and computational skills that Civil Engineering technicians perform daily.

A Valued Team Member
Our students are uniquely qualified to use the modern technology, software, and graphic techniques necessary for the production of civil engineering documents, like roadway diagrams and construction layouts. On the job, civil engineering technicians are the go-to team member for the application of these documents. Whether it’s estimating material quantities or troubleshooting technology problems, we make it our job to prepare students for success in their roles.

See Your Work Come to Life
One of the best parts of Civil Engineering technology is the opportunity to build real-world applications of scientific and mathematical concepts. When students determine the forces and stresses in structural systems, their work is not completed in a vacuum; it comes to life as the very building blocks of entire towns and cities.
