Civil Engineering Technology, Associate in Applied Science

Florissant Valley

Civil engineering technicians work as part of the project team in the design and construction of roads, dams, airports, bridges, pollution control systems, water and sewage treatment plants, and all types of commercial and industrial buildings. To accomplish that work, the civil technician could be involved in surveying, soil testing, preparation of drawings, basic design, construction inspection, material testing, contract administration, estimating project costs or technical sales. Many positions provide the opportunity to work out of doors.

An interest in practical problem solving and in observing a project from start to finish is important for persons employed in this field. Prior course work in algebra, geometry and drafting would be helpful. If necessary, developmental courses in those subjects are available.

Graduates are qualified for positions as civil and structural design draftsmen, survey instrument operators, construction inspectors, soils technicians and technical sales representatives.
