Take a look around your community, and you'll see the work of civil engineering technicians everywhere - from buildings and bridges to roads and reservoirs. Civil engineering technicians work in support of civil engineering activities from early project development to completion of the project. Civil engineering technicians typically work under the direction of a licensed civil engineer or other professionals. They help civil engineers with infrastructure projects such as roads, bridges, tunnels, ports, railways, airports, energy systems, utilities, public water supply, waste management, and treatment of environmental issues. They may also work with commercial, residential, and land development projects. The exact list of responsibilities for a civil engineering technician will depend on the particular needs of the employer and will be as varied as the profession.

There are many career paths to choose from based on graduates' skills and interests. Examples include construction inspector, surveying technician, quality control technician, project management assistant, engineering assistant, or design technician. Some civil engineering technicians advance into supervisory or administrative positions. Civil engineering technicians may choose to work for a state or local government or in the private sector at a consulting engineering firm or construction contractor. They may work with engineers, project managers, architects, and superintendents, often in both an office and field environment simultaneously.

The State Technical College of Missouri Civil Engineering Technology program prepares graduates to apply basic engineering principles and technical skills in support of engineers engaged in a wide variety of projects.
