Program Description                

The phrase "high tech" has been tossed around in engineering circles for the past several years, bringing to mind images of super computers, lasers and robotics. Plenty!

Today, civil engineering technicians (CET) and construction design technicians (CDT) are applying computers, global positioning systems, satellite imaging, geographic information systems, and other high-tech developments to every aspect of their work in research, design, construction , and management. This application of high technology is evident in the CET and CDT programs at Yakima Valley Community College.


The Engineering Department faculty prides itself in its one-on-one dedication and attention to each student's successful completion of their academic goals. Take a moment to discuss your goals with our instructors.

Engineering Mission Statement

To successfully prepare students to tackle the challenges, problems and opportunities in the engineering field for the benefit of their communities and/or to enter as juniors into accredited four-year engineering programs by providing locally, equivalent course and instruction that effectively instill the skills abilities needed for transfer.
