Civil Engineering Technology - Coop (AAS.CETCO)

This cooperative study option has the same course work as the regular program; however, it is extended to include 15 months of on the job experience as an integral part of the training. The student will earn college credit plus typically earn a salary during this experience. The knowledge gained during the field cooperative work experience is very good for building a resume for future employment.

Program requirements may change over time. Specific degree/graduation requirements are determined by a degree audit.
