Civil engineers design, plan, and supervise the construction of roads, buildings, bridges, harbors, water and waste systems, tunnels, and airports. Civil engineers generally need a bachelor's degree — and with the Durham Tech Associate in Engineering Program, you’ll be well on your way.

Our Associate in Engineering program has articulation agreements with five premier engineering schools in the University of North Carolina System. Those agreements allow any courses on the Associate in Engineering plan of study to transfer seamlessly to those universities.
