Highlights


The Engineering Technology Program provides entry-level training for technicians to support engineers in the development and construction oversight of infrastructure such as roadway, utility, and related systems that affect every aspect of daily life. Hands-on training includes computer-aided drafting and design, engineering graphics, surveying, monitoring and quality control of construction, and interpersonal skills. Current coursework is based largely upon civil engineering. Students may receive training through several one-year certificate and two-year degree options and enter the work force upon completion. In addition, several courses are offered on a continuing-education basis. The curriculum is kept current through an advisory board composed of local and regional industry members.
