In this ABET-accredited Civil Engineering Technology program at Pennsylvania College of Technology, you’ll get hands on with the latest technology, hone your critical thinking skills, and take away the technical know-how to craft highways, structures, hydraulic systems, and development sites.


This curriculum is designed to equip graduates to face the challenge of modern engineering practice. The major emphasizes applications-based engineering studies involving the planning, analysis, and design of civil engineering/surveying projects. Modern approaches to the planning, analysis, and design of highways, structures, hydraulic systems, and site development are emphasized. This technical instruction with modern instrumentation, hardware, and software is reinforced with foundation courses emphasizing written and oral communication, and physical sciences. All of the instruction is presented with problem solving in mind and with a strong emphasis on applications and critical thinking. The major prepares students for the Fundamentals of Engineering exam, which is the first step in registering as a professional engineer in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

Career Opportunities

Graduates of the Civil Engineering Technology program at Pennsylvania College of Technology can seek employment in a wide range of civil engineering specialties.
