Construction Engineering Technology

AAS Degree – Code #0577

The technical education in this program is a well-designed balance of theoretical and laboratory studies, providing the graduate with a broad knowledge of civil engineering technology and the construction fields. This training provides the background which enables a person to progress to advanced technical and supervisory positions in the industry and reflects the changes occurring in the construction industry due to expanding computer technology and use of electronically controlled equipment.

The College sponsors an intern program with the NYS Asphalt Pavement Association and The National Asphalt Pavement Association which enables qualified students to work within this segment of the industry during the summer after the first year.

This program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission, Accreditation Board for Engineering Technology, Inc. (ETAC/ABET), 111 Market Place - Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202; (410) 347-7700. http://www.abet.org.

A laptop computer is required for students entering the construction engineering technology program. Laptop specifications are available at www.alfredstate.edu/required-laptops.

A student who completes the AAS degree can complete the bachelor’s degree in two additional years.
