A pipeline to success.

Engineering technicians use their knowledge of science, engineering, math, and technical processes and apply the principles, designs, and procedures developed by engineers to practical situations. Our Civil Engineering program offers a broad, science-based education that focuses on engineering mechanics and materials, computer aided design (CAD), structural mechanics, surveying, and strength of materials. You’ll also gain a working knowledge of geotechnical design and foundation materials testing, surveying, materials science analysis and testing, hydraulics and hydrology, and computer assisted drawing.

Our graduates are in high demand in the energy, construction, and mining industries. They’re helping design and supervise highway and construction projects, working in materials analysis and testing, inspecting water treatment systems, and much more.
