The Architectural, Civil and Construction Engineering Technology AAS degree is accredited by the Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering (ATMAE). Consistent with the mission of the College, the Architectural, Civil and Construction Engineering Technology Program publishes the following broad stated educational objectives or the expected accomplishments from graduates during their first few years after graduation.

The Program Educational Objectives for Architectural, Civil and Construction Engineering Technology, Associate of Applied Science Degree are:

  • Demonstrate an ability to identify, analyze, and interpret data in order to solve technical problems.
  • Function on teams demonstrating leadership and team skills.
  • Demonstrate the ability to communicate both in oral and written mediums by preparing reports and presentations from multiple sources.

The Architectural, Civil and Construction Engineering Technology degree offers students a broad range of courses in the design and construction of residential, commercial and industrial type buildings as well as heavy construction projects such as highways, water and wastewater systems, storm drainage, general site planning, etc. The student will choose either the Architectural Concentration or the Civil and Construction Concentration.

Civil and Construction Engineering Technology Concentration


The Civil and Construction Engineering Technology Concentration prepares students for employment in the fields of structures, surveying, materials testing, water and wastewater systems, construction management and computer-aided-drafting. The program prepares technicians with a broad background in many different areas of design and construction through coursework in CAD, construction materials, testing, estimating, specifications and surveying.

Graduates of the Civil and Construction Engineering Technology Concentration should be able to:

  • Perform basic calculations in the fields of surveying, water, structures and construction.
  • Use current computer software applications specific to the civil and construction industry.
  • Demonstrate knowledge of the materials and methods of construction for residential and commercial buildings.
  • Operate designated tools and equipment in a lab and field environment.

Transfer/Advising

The A.A.S. degree is designed to prepare a student for employment upon graduation. Some universities, at their discretion, accept some technical courses for transfer. A student who plans to transfer to a university should consult his/her advisor about transfer prior to registration for classes. Failure to do so could result in loss of transfer credits.
