Civil Engineering Technology (AAS.CET)

Associate Degree in Applied Science

This program prepares students with skills necessary for employment as a civil engineering technician with consulting engineering firms, testing laboratories, utilities and local, state and federal government agencies. Emphasis is placed on such tasks as surveying, materials testing, drafting, construction inspection, etc., associated with civil engineering. There is a strong demand for civil technicians; thus, employment opportunities are good. Civil Engineering Technology provides a balance between outdoor and indoor work which many find desirable. Surveying, field testing, construction supervision and testing are essentially outdoor work while drafting, design and laboratory testing are indoor work.
