The Civil Engineering Technology curriculum provides relevant engineering skills and theory needed by technicians to carry out planning, analysis, and supervisory tasks in the design and construction of transportation and utility infrastructure, as well as elements relevant to residential and commercial site design. There are scholarship funds available for this program of study.
Civil Engineering Technology students are introduced to a variety of coursework covering drainage and erosion control, statics and strength of materials, materials testing, site design and site surveying, as well as CAD and GIS software suitable for performing common workplace objectives. Students working in their field of study, with access to equipment and software, may also have opportunities to earn credit for course lab objectives by submitting workplace generated material in lieu of attending scheduled on campus labs. Graduates also have transfer opportunities to pursue B.S. degrees at UNCC (Civil Engineering Technology), ECU (Industrial Technology), and NC A&T (Geomatics).
