Undergradute Programs

Civil Engineering Technology

This program is designed to give the student a thorough knowledge of the basic engineering science and hands-on experience and training in the application of fundamental principles in the analysis, design, and maintenance of civil engineering works. Students in Civil Engineering Technology have the opportunity to prepare themselves for a professional career in one of several areas into which the field is traditionally divided: structures, foundations, surveying, hydraulics, material testing, soil mechanics, and construction. Graduates of this program find challenging opportunities to pursue careers in a broad spectrum of fields including urban transportation systems, industrial and commercial building, pollution control systems, water development systems, and housing and urban planning.

The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) and Student Outcomes (SOs) of the Civil Engineering Technology program are as follows:
