Construction Engineering Technology  

Earning an Associate of Science Degree in the area of Construction Engineering Technology can lead a graduate to a rewarding career in many different job markets. Construction firms, supply manufacturers, departments of transportation, and the oil industry seek these trained professionals to assist with the design, development, and management of construction processes. 

Independence Community College’s two-year program provides a strong technical foundation wherein students study construction practices, planning, estimating, computer applications, and project management. This program prepares the Construction Engineer Tech to apply basic engineering principles and technical skills in support of engineers, engineering contractors and other professionals engaged in the construction.  Workforce positions for a Tech include being a contractor, estimator, supervisor, project manager, or sales representative.

A degree in Construction Engineering Technology can easily transfer to a four-year institution.  Students wanting to transfer need to be aware of the specific requirements for transfer and seek advising/counseling in ICC’s Engineering Technology Department.
