B.S. in Civil Engg. Technology Degree Requirements

The Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering Technology program prepares students in planning, designing and building infrastructure and facilities. Civil engineering technologists work in areas such as transportation, water systems, utilities, structures, pollution control, surveying, soil mechanics and foundations.

The B.S. in Civil Engineering Technology curriculum requires the successful completion of 128 credits. It includes mathematics, basic sciences, English composition and communications, humanities and social sciences, and technical courses.

Required technical courses include: Computer-Aided Drafting, Surveying, Construction Materials and Systems, Statics, Engineering Practices, Graphics and Design, Estimating, Strength of Materials, Environmental and Land Use Planning, Programming Languages in Engineering, Contracts and Specifications, Materials Technology, Applied Thermodynamics, Dynamics, Structures, Soil Mechanics, Project Management and Control, Fluid Mechanics, Foundations, Advanced Structural Analysis, Engineering Statistics and Reliability, Advanced Concrete Design, Circuits, Management and Engineering Economics, Advanced Steel Design and Civil Technology Design Project. Technical electives such as Highway Design, Solid Waste Management and Environmental Engineeringare available.
