Civil Engineering Technicians

Experience, Skills, and Personality Traits

Employers tend to favor candidates who have completed a two-year program to earn their associate's degree in civil engineering technology, and have also completed one internship at an engineering firm. Another option is to earn a certificate in a vocational or technical school, where the programs typically include more hands-on training. For those with less formal training, learning some skills on the job would be valuable.
