Program Number: 10-607-5
School Year: 2013-2014
Associate of Applied Science Degree
Campus: Fond du Lac
The Civil Engineering Technician - Structural program develops the knowledge and experience in planning and design skills to support the architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) industries. Students apply computer-aided design (CAD) and building information models (BIM) as it relates to these industries. Students are also introduced to concepts and requirements relating to green design (LEED) and construction practices. Students learn the procedures of testing materials such as concrete and soils. Surveying is also introduced to the students with hands on learning in the field. In addition to strong computer skills, students need strong math, spatial and analytical skills to meet the demands of the engineering coursework.
Graduates work for civil engineering firms, architectural firms, contractors, surveyors, municipalities, testing facilities, mechanical and electrical design firms and public utilities.
