Civil Engineering Technology

Accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET,

The curriculum in civil engineering technology is designed to provide ample instruction in those areas of knowledge required for successful performance in the following capacities as well as in other construction related positions:

Architectural and Structural Draftsman and Designer - plans, designs, and supervises construction of frame, steel, and concrete structures; makes architectural inspections and appraisals for architects and builders.

Highway Engineering Technologist - collects and tests soil samples, concrete and other materials to ascertain their physical characteristics for use in highway construction; establishes the location and measurements of points, elevations, lines, areas and contours of land needed for highway construction and prepares hard copy, draft or computer generated drawings of same.

Estimator - determines quantities and costs of materials and labor required to erect structures.

Materials Tester - determines mechanical properties of materials used in the erection of structures and highways.

Surveyor - supervises, directs, and is responsible for the accuracy of the work of an engineering survey party engaged in determining the location and measurements of points, elevations, lines, areas, and contours on the earth's surface for purposes of securing data for building and highway construction, map-making, land-valuation, mining, or other purposes.

Environmental Technologist - Plans, designs, and monitors water, wastewater, and other environmental pollution control systems
