NEW PROGRAM! Civil Engineering Technology

New England Institute of Technology is very excited to announce our latest Associate in Science degree program, Civil Engineering Technology!

The Civil Engineering Technology Program prepares graduates to become an integral member of the engineering and construction team.

The program emphasizes the practical application of construction technology and engineering principles.

A Civil Engineering Technologist designs, engineers, analyzes, and assists in the supervision of building construction and infrastructure projects such as roadways, bridges, and environmental facilities. As an integral member of the engineering and construction team, the Civil Engineering Technologist must have the ability to create and build structures that will answer the engineering, economic, safety, technical, and aesthetic requirements of a project. This program allows the student to develop those necessary abilities by emphasizing the application of the fundamentals of civil engineering and design within the context of the scientific and technical aspects of materials, soils, planning, surveying, structures, environmental systems, and construction. The program is also designed to instill within the student a sense of professionalism and a desire to serve and contribute to society.

If you would like additional information about any of New England Tech’s over 40 Associate, Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programs, including Civil Engineering Technology.
