Civil Engineering Technology CEGT.S.AAS

Associate of Applied Science - 60 - 64 Credit Hours

Division: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics
Department: Civil Engineering Technology
Effective as of Fall 2024

What is the program about?

In Civil Engineering Technology, students are prepared to work as technicians in the planning, design, construction and operation of the built environment in our civilized world. A strong background in basics of architectural and civil construction and in-depth study of advanced topics such as surveying, construction management and structural analysis prepares students to produce and use construction documents and perform basic design and analysis.

Program Outcomes

  • Apply written, oral, and graphical communication in well-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature.
  • Design solutions for well-defined technical problems and assist with the engineering design of systems, components, or processes appropriate to the discipline.
  • Apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve well-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline.
  • Conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results.
  • Function effectively as a member of a technical team.

Career Opportunities

Graduates will be prepared for entry-level careers in surveying, construction engineering, and aligned professions.


Formal articulation agreements with other colleges and universities indicate how Sinclair programs and courses will transfer to other institutions.

Additional Information

The Program Educational Objectives are as follows:

  • Graduates have the knowledge and skills necessary to function as a design technician or closely related position in industry.

  • Graduates have the knowledge and skills necessary to transfer into a baccalaureate degree program.
