Civil Engineering Technology

Civil Engineering Technology graduates find employment opportunities in the design, construction and inspection of airports, bridges, water treatment systems, dams, railroads and highway planning and maintenance. Specific job responsibilities include computer-aided design/drafting, material testing, site surveying and cost estimating. Students have several choices with this major. Students can earn the A.A.S. Degree in Civil Engineering Technology. The emphasis in this program is on practical applications that provide students with skills that can be used on the job as civil engineering technicians.

Total Credits: 30

Program Outcomes

Graduates of the Program will be able to:

  • Apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to narrowly defined engineering technology activities.
  • Apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require limited application of principles but extensive practical knowledge.
  • Conduct standard tests and measurements, and to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments. Function effectively as a member of a technical team.
  • Identify, analyze, and solve narrowly defined engineering technology problems.
  • Apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and nontechnical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature.
  • Understand and be committed to addressing professional and ethical responsibilities, including a respect for diversity.
  • Utilize principles, hardware, and software that are appropriate to produce drawings, reports, quantity estimates, and other documents related to civil engineering.
  • Conduct standardized field and laboratory tests related to civil engineering.
  • Utilize surveying methods appropriate for land measurement and/or construction layout.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can students transfer to a four-year college or university?

Students may choose to participate in the Joint Admissions Program with the New Jersey Institute of Technology. Many other four-year colleges and universities will apply some or all of the courses taken toward a bachelor’s degree.

What will students learn if they study Civil Engineering Technology?

Students acquire a foundation in communications, calculations, and engineering principles along with the specifics of civil engineering. All technical courses provide a balance between theory and practice.

Are there any requirements students must satisfy before taking courses in the major?

Algebra I is a prerequisite for all majors. Algebra I competency may be verified with a passing score on the College’s placement test or completion of the appropriate. Students must also have a grade of “C” or better in high school algebra II and geometry.

How long will it take to complete this degree?

Once students complete developmental coursework (if needed), the degree can be completed in two years of full-time study. They can shorten the amount of time by taking courses in the summer and winter sessions. They can complete the Certificate in three semesters.
