Civil Engineering Technology AAS71 Credit Hours
Upon completion of this program a student has the opportunity to start a career in the Civil Engineering Technology field or transfer to a higher educational institution concentrating in Civil Engineering Technology. Students will be prepared to work in the planning, design, and/or construction phase of civil engineering projects including aspects such as highways, transportation, bridges, dams, buildings, environmental, hydraulics, and hydrology. Students will learn from field and laboratory experience in addition to theory based instruction. The program has recently been revised to include the use of MicroStation in many of the courses, which reflects the workplace of a civil engineering technician. The course content has been designed to integrate MicroStation into the program while connecting courses for a more cohesive high quality learning experience. MicroStation is the Computer Aided Drafting and Design (CADD) platform used currently in the Civil Engineering field.
A Capstone Project taken from industry is completed using the knowledge gained in the program. This program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http//www.abet.org
It is highly recommended that students entering the Civil Engineering Technology curriculum have successfully completed high school courses in algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and physics or the equivalent.
A joint admissions for the B.S. program in Civil Engineering Technology at SUNY Institute of Technology at Utica/Rome is available.
