The civil engineering technician plays an important role in all phases of the planning, design and construction of highways, bridges, dams, airports, irrigation projects, treatment and distribution facilities for water, and collection and treatment of wastewater, and buildings from residential structures to mini shopping malls to the Cleveland Brown's stadium.

Today's civil engineering technicians are involved in:

  • Estimating costs and controlling project costs
  • Preparing specifications for materials of construction
  • Designing and drafting of buildings, land development projects and highways
  • Job site inspecting for conformance with drawings and specifications
  • On site and laboratory testing of construction materials
  • Boundary surveying and construction layout

Layce Artman I graduated with my associate degree from Lakeland while at the same time graduating as Valedictorian from high school. I plan to attend the Holden University Center to complete my bachelor's degree in criminal justice. Layce Artman College Credit Plus

Michelle Timms One thing I really love about Lakeland and being in the honors program is that the teachers have small classes and they are very devoted to their students. My friends at four-year institutions are taking the same intro classes that I am, but in large lecture halls with a lot more students. Michelle Timms Associate of Arts
