Civil Design Technician: Certificate
Survey your career.
As a civil design technician, your skills in surveying and civil design will always be in demand.
TCL’s Basic Civil Design Technician certificate program prepares students to work in land surveying and civil applications. Students learn the basics of map topography, plat preparation and civil project designing. In addition, students get hands-on experience in operating surveying equipment, and they complete drawing projects using concepts related to linear and angular measurements, map projections, data capture and land development.
The 12-credit-hour certificate program can be completed in as little as one semester. Courses include engineering surveying, basic civil drafting and advanced computer-aided design (CAD) and applications.
