Civil Engineering Technology: A.A.S.
Associate in Applied Science
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. It is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ETAC/ABET). 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.
SEQUENCE OF COURSES: This model is a two-year course schedule for students meeting all program requirements and deciding to pursue full-time study. Schedules will be redesigned for those requiring preparatory courses or those deciding to pursue part-time study.
