Associate in Applied Science

CIP Code: 15.0201


The mission of the Civil Engineering Technology program is to prepare our students for careers in the construction industry with an A.A.S degree and/or the possibility of transferring to a 4-year Civil Engineering Technology program. The program utilizes small class sizes as well as hands on laboratories in a majority of classes to provide students the skills necessary to become a competent and well-respected engineer. Our faculty are proud to work with employers to continuously improve the program and maintain our ABET accreditation.

Civil Engineering Technology (CET) is a diverse field with excellent employment opportunities locally, state-wide, and nationally. Graduates are involved in all phases of the construction industry, from planning and design of buildings, bridges, highways, commercial and industrial facilities, to management and inspection of the construction process. Rewarding careers may be found with consulting engineering companies, construction companies, and governmental agencies such as the NYS Department of Transportation or Broome County's engineering department.

Entry-level jobs may be in computer aided design (CAD), highway design, surveying, structural detailing, construction materials testing, construction management, inspection, or cost estimating.

The CET program incorporates state-of-the-art labs, CAD and other computer applications. The program is designed for immediate career opportunities; however, about 30% of the graduates transfer into Bachelor level programs and receive full two-year transfer credit at many institutions.
