Civil Engineering Technology

The Civil Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org/. 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 draftsperson, 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.

Course Substitutions

Course Substitutions in the AAS Engineering Technology program will be made only for courses with substantial equivalent content (over 80% equivalence to that of the NCC approved course outline) from transfer institutions. Course substitutions will only be granted upon written recommendation and after review of the content by a member of the full-time program faculty. The faculty finding will then be submitted to the Department Chairperson and the Dean of Math and Science for approval. Credit hour equivalency alone will not be an acceptable means to approve a substitution.

Life Experience Credit

Life Experience credit will be made for those students with ten or more years of experience of appropriate breadth and depth of exposure to topics and content in a given course. Life Experience credit is not readily given. Life experience credit will be granted only upon written recommendation by a member of the full-time program faculty, after review of supporting material supplied by the student. The faculty findings will then be submitted to the Department Chairperson and the Dean of Math and Science for approval. Under no circumstance, will a student receive life experience for a 200-level course with the exception of CET 201, CET 222, and CET 321.

Prerequisite Waivers

Course prerequisite waivers will be granted only upon written recommendation by a member of the full-time program faculty, after review of supporting material supplied by the student. The faculty findings will then be submitted to the Department Chairperson and the Dean of Math and Science for approval.
