Program Number: 10-607-5
School Year: 2014-2015
Associate of Applied Science Degree
Campus: Fond du Lac
Serving as a team support member to civil engineers, civil engineering technicians help plan and design the construction of highways, bridges, utilities and other major infrastructure projects.
Moraine Park's Civil Engineering Technician - Structural associate of applied science program provides the knowledge and experience in planning and design that are needed in today's architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) industries. Students apply building information model (BIM) and computer-aided design and drafting (CADD) skills to architectural, structural and related designs. Hands-on learning includes surveying in the field and testing materials such as concrete and soils. In addition to strong computer skills, students need math, spatial relations and analytical skills to meet the demands of the engineering coursework.They also are introduced to concepts and requirements of green design (LEED) and construction practices.
Graduates may find employment with civil engineering firms, architectural firms, contractors, surveyors, municipalities, testing facilities, mechanical and electrical design firms and public utilities.
