Civil Engineering Technology
Civil engineering technologists help civil engineers to plan and build highways, buildings, bridges, dams, wastewater treatment systems, and other structures, and to do related research. Some estimate construction costs and specify materials to be used, and some may even prepare drawings or perform land-surveying duties. Others may set up and monitor instruments used to study traffic conditions. Civil engineering technologists often work in support of civil engineering activities including designing bridges, highways or large complexes. They may assist in overseeing or monitoring construction, evaluating materials quality, reviewing surveying or mapping, or handling cost estimates and budgets.

Preparation
Those interested in a career in civil engineering technology should consider reviewing engineering technology programs that are accredited by ABET, Inc. However, there are many ET programs not yet accredited by ABET, so check with your local community college or university for more information. If you choose to attend a program that is not ABET accredited, you should be sure that the university is regionally accredited. Students take courses such as properties and strength of materials, construction methods and materials, structural design, structural analysis, and hydraulics and land development. The foll
owing is a current list of all universities offering accredited degree programs in civil engineering technology.
