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.

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.

Our students transfer to 4-year colleges and universities around the globe. We’ve had students transfer to every state, including Alaska and Hawaii.
The Statewide Transfer Agreement for New Jersey ensures that students who earn an A.A. or A.S. degree at a community college will have those credits fully transferable to a New Jersey public four-year institution, will have completed half of the credits required for a basic four-year degree and will have completed all lower division general education requirements. In addition, articulation agreements are being worked out with institutions granting baccalaureate degrees to facilitate the transfer process. Students should discuss the transfer process with an advisor.
