Curriculum for students entering program in 2014-15.
The degree of Associate in Science in Civil Engineering Technology is awarded upon successful completion of the program.
The Civil Engineering Technology (CVET) program responds to employer needs for graduates who can function effectively in the areas of design and maintenance of highway infrastructure, as well as structural, civil, environmental, sustainability, and an array of other construction jobs requiring specific training and education in the area of civil engineering. This program would be of interest to individuals considering jobs in the civil engineering, civil engineering technology, construction management, surveying, and environmental engineering fields. In addition, the program provides a solid background for students seeking to transfer into baccalaureate institutions with civil engineering, civil engineering technology, environmental engineering technology, surveying, construction management, and fire safety engineering programs.
Please note: The new Civil Engineering Technology program is not ETAC of ABET’s accredited yet. However, the department plans to seek the ETAC of ABET’s accreditation as soon as it is prepared to do so.
As Civil Engineering Technology majors, students will learn to solve design and engineering problems by utilizing skills learned in civil engineering, mathematics, and physics courses. General education courses such as English, economics and ethics provide additional skills and knowledge required to address both technical and workplace issues. The CET program culminates in a capstone project or independent study utilizing a wide spectrum of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills.
Specific Admission Requirements
- At least three years of college preparatory mathematics (Algebra I, Algebra II and Geometry) with minimum grades of “C”;
- It is strongly recommended that all engineering technology applicants have satisfactorily completed high school level courses in chemistry and physics.
NHTI has developed excellent practicum opportunities for our students to foster hands-on learning while simultaneously receiving credit. Nonetheless, the college's first priority must be to ensure that patients/clients/children/families are not placed in jeopardy by students during learning experiences. Therefore, students in internship, externship, practicum, service learning, and clinical experiences must demonstrate sufficient emotional stability to withstand the stresses, uncertainties and changing circumstances that characterize patient/client/child/family responsibilities. Furthermore, the student is expected to have the emotional stability required to exercise sound judgment, accept direction and guidance from a supervisor or faculty member, and establish rapport and maintain sensitive interpersonal relationships and confidentiality with employees, customers, and/or patients/clients/children and their families.
