Civil Engineering Technology  

Civil Engineering Technology is a wonderful program of study for the student interested in using their skills to assist in the maintenance of the nation's infrastructure and the planning for growth and expansion. This program offers graduates the training needed to assist civil engineers in the planning and designing of bridges, roads, water and sewage systems, tunnels, and other structures. They additionally help plan the construction of new buildings and the abolishing of old buildings. Employment can range from the large corporations to city government.

Independence Community College offers the Civil Engineering Technology Program as an Associate of Applied Science Degree.  While many students continue on past their associate degree to obtain a bachelor's degree, those majoring in the field of Civil Engineering may be surprised by the types of jobs they can get with a two-year degree.  Courses of study can also be individually tailored to meet student and employer needs.
