About the Program
The Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology – Civil emphasis is a plus-two program that builds on and complements associate degrees earned in civil engineering technology or similar areas. The program provides an opportunity to choose a plan to study toward a baccalaureate degree which best meets the student’s needs. Entrance requirements to this program include an associate of science degree in a civil engineering technology program with appropriate course work, including physical sciences and mathematics (through analytic geometry with calculus).
Graduates from BridgeValley Community and Technical College with an associate degree in civil engineering technology may transfer directly into the program as juniors. Graduates of associate degree in civil engineering technology or closely related programs from other institutions may enter the program directly as juniors based on an evaluation of their transcripts. This evaluation determines if additional lower division courses will be required to meet the prerequisites of the program.
Students may also transfer from civil engineering programs or programs related to civil engineering technology at a level dependent on an evaluation of their courses. Freshman students may gain admission to the civil engineering technology program is they have completed lower division courses at BridgeValley Community and Technical College which is located within walking distance of the WVU Tech campus.
All students must meet the requirements of the institution and the core curriculum for graduation. The program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET.
Plus-Two Baccalaureate Transfer Options
Students who have completed coursework or associate degree programs in engineering-oriented programs at other institutions and wish to continue their studies toward a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering technology may do so.
