Engineering & Construction Technologies
The engineering and construction technologies fields are challenging and well-paying and have evolved into high-tech industries. There are numerous employment and transfer opportunities for graduates with an Associate in Applied Science degree in the engineering and construction technologies program area.
We offer 1-year certificates, 2-year Associate in Applied Science degrees and several transfer opportunities in various program areas enabling individuals to enter the workforce in the civil engineering, environmental engineering, surveying, construction or architectural fields.
You will be provided with current technology and comprehensive training. All aspects of our programs are taught using a combination of classroom instruction with hands-on application.

Overall, the demand for engineering technologies graduates within the U.S. is very strong and should continue to grow. Improvement and updating of infrastructure along with a strong construction market will result in more jobs for two-year technicians in the years to come.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics lists the annual median pay (2019) for the following 2-year and 4-year engineering technologies related occupations between about $45,000 to $95,000.
2-Year: Civil Engineering Technician
2-Year: Environmental Engineering Technician
2-Year: Surveying or Mapping Technician
4-Year: Environmental Engineers
4-Year: Cartographers and Photogrammetrists
Our Engineering and Construction Technologies graduates have several transfer opportunities available.
