Civil Construction Management
- Estimated Length of Program: 2 years
- Credential Awarded: Associate in Science in Civil Engineering Technology
I went into the Civil Engineering Technology program as a young student at STCC not knowing anything about the field, but I came out with my degree loving it. After working as a civil engineer for several years, I started teaching. Civil engineers specialize in areas such as structural analysis, transportation, soils and foundations, water resources, and environmental engineering. I tell my first-year students we make civilization possible. Our jobs are extremely important.Cynthia DeSellier, 2000, STCC Professor
