Civil Engineering Technology

Engineering and Technology Pathway programs are designed to prepare students through the study and application of principles from mathematics, natural sciences, and technology and applied processes based on these subjects.

The Civil Engineering Technology program is a course of study that prepares students to use basic engineering principles and technical skills to carry out planning, documenting and supervising tasks in sustainable land development and public works and facilities projects.

Coursework includes instruction in the communication and computational skills required for materials testing, structural testing, field and laboratory testing, site analysis, estimating, project management, plan preparation, hydraulics, environmental technology, and surveying.

Graduates should qualify for technician-level jobs with both public and private engineering, construction, and surveying agencies.

Transfer Arrangements

Civil Engineering Technology graduates have transfer opportunities in the Civil Engineering Technology and Construction Management programs at UNC at Charlotte, the Construction Management program at East Carolina University, and the Construction Management program at Appalachian State University.
