Civil Engineering Technology-Highway Technician

Civil Engineering Technology-Highway Technician

Associate in Applied Science (AAS)

When you drive by road construction, do you want to be in on the action?  Do you want to be part of teams that design and construct public projects like roads, bridges, parking lots, and stormwater management?  Are you a mathematical/analytical minded person?  Are you detail oriented and a team player? Do you have strong communication skills?

As a Civil Engineering Technology-Highway Technician program student, you have hands-on experience with survey exercises, lab tests and experiments, civil design projects, cost estimates, and a capstone design project.

Long-term outlook for job placement of graduates is excellent! In this constantly changing field of engineering, you can find jobs at utility, surveying, construction, and construction inspection companies, as well as construction material suppliers, municipal engineering departments, and the department of transportation. In this line of work, you even have the unique opportunity to be entirely indoors or outdoors.

The MSTC Civil Engineering Technology-Highway Technician program is offered at Wisconsin Rapids Campus.
