School of Engineering Technology

The Civil Technology program (CIV), following the missions of both Farmingdale State College and the State University of New York, offers a comprehensive and stimulating program that fulfills the needs of students and regional employers. This program promotes student learning as well as the advancement of technology while contributing to the local economy.  Fulfilling Farmingdale State College’s mission, the program produces graduates with high technical skills and knowledge are ready to enter the workforce in New York State.

Student Learning Outcomes (based on ABET requirements):

Upon completion of the program students will demonstrate:

  • an ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to broadly-defined engineering technology activities;
  • an ability to select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies;
  • an ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments; and, to apply experimental results to improve processes;
  • an ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives;
  • an ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team;
  • an ability to identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems;
  • an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments; and, an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
  • an understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development;
  • an understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity;
  • knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context;
  • a commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.
