Civil & Environmental Engineering Technology - Program Description
The Civil & Environmental Engineering Technology (C&ET) curriculum provides students with a Bachelor of Technology (BTech) degree that meets the demands of today’s industry.
Students receive hand-on training and the background necessary to be competitive and successful in civil and environmental engineering technology. Flexibility with program electives allows students to study in areas of structural analysis and design, water and wastewater testing and treatment, environmental remediation, geotechnology, construction and project management, surveying, and AutoCADD/REVIT drafting and BIM. Graduates have the opportunity to pursue graduate study.
Students in this Major:
- Master the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools in civil and environmental engineering technology.
- Select and apply engineering, technology, science, mathematical skills to applications, problemsa and design.
- Conduct experiments, analyze, interpret, and apply experimental results.
- Have knowledge of construction and earth materials; their properties, use, manipulation, and testing procedures.
- Proficient in common water, wastewater, and soil collection and testing procedures.
