Civil Engineering Technology (A.A.S.)–The Civil Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (TAC of ABET). [Accreditation Director for Engineering Technology, Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, 111 Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202] The curriculum is balanced between liberal arts, mathematics, and civil engineering technology courses. Although many enter industry after graduation, others elect to transfer to Baccalaureate programs in engineering technology. Civil Engineering Technology graduates are guaranteed acceptance as juniors at Fairleigh Dickinson and Rochester Institute of Technology. Others have transferred to Pennsylvania State University, New Jersey Institute of Technology, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and many other colleges. Civil engineering technicians are employed in all phases of the construction industry: small houses, building construction, highways, industrial plants, water supply, and sewage treatment plants. They work as concrete and steel designers, detailers, AutoCAD draftpersons, surveyors, estimators, construction superintendents, inspectors, and sales engineers. Their employers include architects; contractors; consulting engineers; land surveyors; equipment manufacturers; material suppliers; and federal, state, county, and town departments.
