Civil Engineering Technology - Highway Technology

In today’s fast-paced society being able to quickly get from place to place is essential. Become a part of the team designing the highways of tomorrow with a Civil Engineering Technology (CET) – Highway Technology associate degree at Gateway Technical College.

Civil engineering technicians help civil engineers plan the construction of highways, buildings, bridges and other structures. Highway technicians may also estimate construction costs, prepare drawings and develop a list of needed supplies.

Gateway’s construction science group (CSG) programs (CET-Highway, Land Survey, CET-Fresh Water and Architectural-Structural Engineering) share a common first year of coursework. This allows for a basic understanding of all four areas which is a valuable fundamental skill set while giving students an opportunity to explore each program and decide what the best fit is for them. In the second year of the program students take core classes in Civil Engineering – Highway Technology. 

Courses are offered at the integrated Manufacturing and Engineering Technology (iMET) Center in Sturtevant. Students can also access courses through the Nodal network on Gateway’s Elkhorn Campus. The Nodal workstation is equipped with headphones and webcams, providing two-way audio and video communication across the internet, including the ability to share screens, allowing students to fully participate in class as if they were in the classroom at iMET.
