1 June 16, 2011 Civil Engineering Technology- The specialized fields within the Civil Engineering Technology Program include the two concentrations: Structures and Construction. The curriculum combines theory and applications in the Civil Engineering areas. The CET graduates apply engineering principles in performing many of the tasks necessary for the planning, designing and construction of highways, buildings, railroads, bridges, reservoirs, dams, irrigation works, water systems, airports and other structures. They participate in estimating costs, preparing material specifications. During the construction phase they work closely with the contractor and the superintendent in scheduling field layout, construction activities, and the inspection of the work for conformity to specifications. In recent years, a major work area has involved environmental problems. Faculty The top priority for faculty in the CET program is teaching and advising. With many years of industrial experience, they bring their expertise, relevancy and currency to the classrooms. The low faculty - student ratio results in a very interactive and personal classroom milieu. What Courses Will I Take? Engineering Science Engineering Graphics Structural Drawing Statics Dynamics Mechanics of Materials Fluid Mechanics Thermodynamics Analysis and Design Concrete Design Steel Design Timber Design Computer Programming Structural Analysis Mathematics Calculus Natural Science General Chemistry Physics Communication Skills English Composition Effective Speaking Technical Writing Students The low faculty to student ratio provides each student with individual counseling, and advising in meeting graduation requirements. Many Civil Engineering Technology students are working part-time or full-time. The program offers several evening courses to accommodate the working student. The CET program s collaboration with the Internship Center of the college offers possibilities for students to gain industrial experience and earn technical elective credits at the same time. Civil Engineering Technology students are active in the American Society of Civil (ASCE). The ASCE student chapter participates in competitions organized by ASCE and American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), invites guest speakers to their meetings, organizes field trips, hosts social functions, and provides community service. The Colorado Section of the ASCE and the Younger Member Group (YMG) is a strong supporter of the student chapter. Students involved in the ASCE chapter have a strong link to the industry in the Civil Engineering field. All students who are considering a major in civil engineering technology are expected to consult with CET faculty advisor.

10 Page 10 of 12 Engineering Technology Frequently Asked Questions (revised June 10, 2011) Does Metropolitan State College of Denver offer Engineering? Yes, MSCD offers a form of engineering called Engineering Technology. Four-year Bachelor of Science Engineering Technology degrees are available in Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical. What is the difference between Engineering Technology and Engineering? - The engineering technology degree is a hands-on, applications oriented method of applied engineering that is primarily aimed at the work force to fit between an Engineer and a Technician, whereas the engineering degree is more of a theory and research oriented degree. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (1998) wrote the following about the difference: Engineer vs. Engineering Technology In addition to the standard engineering degree, many colleges offer degrees in engineering technology, which are offered as either 2- or 4-year programs. These programs prepare students for practical design and production work rather than for jobs that require more theoretical, scientific and mathematical knowledge. Graduates of 4-year technology programs may get jobs similar to those obtained by graduates with a bachelor's degree in engineering. Some employers regard them as having skills between those of a technician and an engineer. Many 4-year colleges offer bachelor's degrees in engineering technology, but graduates of these programs are often hired to work as technologists or applied engineers, not technicians. How do I decide which degree is right for me, Engineering or Engineering Technology? 1. Research the various degree options that are available. 2. Ask questions of different schools. 3. Ask if they have any alumni or industry contacts that you can talk to. 4. Some students find out that they want to switch degrees after they have started the program. The later you switch the harder it becomes. I am interested in computers, what forms of degrees are available? - The college has several degree programs in Computers, some of which are: Computer Information Systems (CIS) from the School of Business, Computer Science (CS) from the School of Arts and Letters, Electrical Engineering Technology with a Computer Engineering Technology Concentration which is part of the School of Professional Studies. Available through MSCD s Individualized Degree Program (IDP) is a Bachelor of Science in Computer Engineering Technology which is not ABET accredited. I am interested in a second degree. Do I have to take all the classes listed as required? - No, in fact many first four-year degrees satisfy the general studies requirements of the college. Exceptions tend to occur in the general college requirements areas of: a three-credit multicultural requirement (many four-year degrees do not require a multicultural course) and the senior experience requirement (which must be taken in residency at Metro State). If the student in their first degree meets the Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics and other requirements, a second degree can be met in a minimum amount of time. An advisor can work out with the student which classes they will need for a second degree. The student must keep in mind we still must maintain standards that are set by our TAC of ABET accreditation and the college. What is ABET accreditation? To quote ABET, Inc.: In the United States, accreditation is a non-governmental, peer review process that ensures educational quality. Educational institutions or programs volunteer to periodically undergo this review to determine if minimum criteria are being met. Accreditation verifies that an institution or program meets the criteria, ensuring a quality educational experience. There are two types of accreditation: institutional and specialized. Institutional accreditation evaluates overall institutional quality. Regional accreditation of institutions is one form of this. Specialized accreditation, however, examines specific programs of study to determine if graduates are prepared to enter the profession. This type of accreditation is granted to specific programs at specific levels. Programs of architecture, nursing, law, medicine and engineering are often evaluated through this type of accreditation. In the United States, ABET, Inc. formally the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology is responsible for the specialized accreditation of educational programs in engineering, engineering technology and engineering-related fields. Programs either receive accreditation or are denied, but they are not ranked. ABET began in 1932 as the Council for Professional Development (ECPD) and was formed to promote the status of the engineering profession and enhance the quality of engineering education. In 1980, the ECPD became the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, focusing its efforts on the accreditation of educational programs. ABET now accredits some 2,300 engineering, engineering technology and engineering-related educational programs at over 500 colleges and universities in the U.S. ABET is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) for its responsibility in these areas. In 1997, ABET expanded its mission to include the accreditation of applied science programs.

11 Page 11 of 12 ABET is a federation of 30 professional engineering and technical societies. Representatives from these societies, who are practicing professionals from industry and academe, form the body of ABET through its Board of Directors and four working Commissions: Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) Technology Accreditation Commission (TAC) Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC) Applied Science Accreditation Commission (ASAC) The ABET Board of Directors sets policy and approves accreditation criteria while the Commissions implement accreditation procedures and decisions. The active participation of practicing professionals allows accreditation to reflect standards set by the profession itself. This approach provides a better-prepared graduate, which ultimately translates into a valuable employee. Why is accreditation important? Accreditation helps many people make important decisions about education including: Students choosing an educational program Parents seeking assurance of a quality education Institutions seeking to improve the education provided by their programs Employers recruiting well-prepared graduates State registration, licensure and certification boards screening applicants for entry into professional practice Industry seeking to voice educational needs to institutions What degrees are ABET accredited at Metro? Only five: Civil Engineering Technology, Electrical Engineering Technology, and Mechanical Engineering Technology programs are accredited by the ABET Technology Accreditation Commission (TAC). Computer Information Systems, and Computer Science Programs are accredited by the ABET Computing Accreditation Commission (CAC). ABET, Inc Market Place, Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202, Telephone: (410) What are the pay differences between Engineering and Engineering Technology? In the early 1990 s the pay differences between the two groups started to disappear as the demand for engineers grew. Our engineering technology grads now are making the same salaries as engineering grads. What is the demand for engineers? According to the Occupational Employment Statistics from Bureau of Labor Statistics over the period : Civil Engineering a 24.3% growth Mechanical Engineering a 6% growth Computer Hardware Engineering a 3.8% growth Electrical Engineering a 1.7% growth Electronics, Except Computer a 0.3% growth What are the salaries (pay) like? From the Wage Occupational Employment Statistics Survey Data for 2010 in Colorado, Source CO LMI, OES. National data Source BLS. Hourly: Occupational Title Entry Level Mean Median Experienced National Hourly Mean Civil $25.45 $38.24 $37.36 $44.63 $39.56 Computer Hardware $34.02 $51.05 $50.03 $59.56 $48.85 Electrical $26.61 $41.97 $39.73 $49.65 $42.20 Electronics, Except $31.51 $45.39 $44.44 $52.33 $44.58 Computer Mechanical $28.31 $44.24 $42.84 $52.20 $39.65

Yes, Colorado law and the Colorado State Board of Licensure for Architects, Professional, and Professional Land Surveyors rules allows graduates of an Engineering Technology program that is ABET accredited to sit for the EI and PE exams. When PE or EI is the goal of the student we might recommend an engineering degree program based on that students needs. Certainly the Engineering Technology student should select all electives courses taken with regard to suitability as possible courses that might help passage of the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam. Note: We used to display the State of Colorado Revised Statues and Board of Licensure rules as part of this answer on professional licensure. Several changes have occurred in the Colorado Revised Statues and instead of maintaining our own listing we have decided that it is best to refer the student or perspective student to THE COLORADO STATE BOARD OF LICENSURE FOR ARCHITECTS, PROFESSIONAL ENGINEERS, AND PROFESSIONAL LAND SURVEYORS.
