Civil Engineering Technology

You’ll be trained to assist civil engineers in planning, designing and constructing highways, bridges, dams, tunnels, airports, water supply systems, buildings and other structures. Use up-to-date computer programs in estimating and structural design and other areas as you incorporate basic theoretical knowledge with practical laboratory applications in indoor and outdoor settings.
