Civil and Construction Engineering Technology

Civil and Construction Engineering Technology

The Civil and Construction Engineering Technology program prepares students for entry-level work with civil engineers, contractors, architects, and government agencies at the city, county, and state levels as well as the public. Civil engineering technicians apply the theories and principles of civil engineering technology and surveying technology in planning, designing, and overseeing construction and maintenance of structures and facilities. They do hands-on work and use high-tech equipment under the direction of engineering staff or physical scientists.

Transfer Information

Hawkeye's Industrial and Engineering Technology Department has a block articulation agreement with the University of Northern Iowa as well as Mount Mercy University to transfer general education and technical credits. Many graduates have transferred substantial credits into the Construction Management program at UNI and the Civil Engineering program at Iowa State University. For more information, contact a program advisor.
