New England Institute of Technology to Offer an Associate in Science Degree in Civil Engineering Technology

EAST GREENWICH, RI – Douglas H. Sherman, Senior Vice President and Provost at New England Institute of Technology, announced that the college will offer an Associate in Science degree in Civil Engineering Technology (CET) beginning Fall 2014. Graduates of this program may matriculate into the Bachelor of Science degree program in Civil Engineering Technology currently under development at New England Tech.

The new CET program prepares students to serve as an integral member of the engineering and construction team. 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. The program emphasizes the practical application of construction technology and engineering principles that include the engineering, economic, safety, technical, and aesthetic requirements of a project while applying the scientific and technical aspects of materials, soils, planning, surveying, structures, environmental systems, and construction.

Civil Engineering Technology courses focus on civil engineering technology fundamentals including: computer aided drafting geared for the Civil Engineering industry (e.g., AutoCAD Civil 3D), construction documents, estimating, materials, structural analysis and design, surveying, and soil mechanics. Students will also conduct field and laboratory testing on civil engineering materials and use computer applications to solve technical problems.

Upon successful completion of the Civil Engineering Technology associate degree program, students may choose to continue their education in the NEIT bachelor degree program or seek entry level positions in the fields of civil engineering, surveying, materials testing, or construction.
