In the civil engineering program you'll learn many hands-on things that even 4-year grads don't learn. Drafting, surveying, and materials testing are three key areas that you will be better prepared in than your bachelor degree counterparts. The workload can be intense (it's engineering technology!) but very rewarding. The curriculum prepares students very well for an internship after their first two semesters and subsequently a full-time career in the field upon graduating. One thing that the program lacks overall, is the opportunities for pursuing a 4-year degree after graduation. Other similar 2-year schools offer much better transfer agreements with central US universities.
