TMCC Offers New Engineering Practitioner Program

Posted: Mar 29, 2010

Truckee Meadows Community College has developed a new civil engineer practitioner program with the support of a two-year, $144,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The Nevada System of Higher Education Board of Regents approved the program at its March meeting. 

Students may earn an associate of applied science (AAS) degree in civil engineering. Graduates may enter the workforce as civil engineering practitioners ready to perform many duties to aid engineers in analysis, design and construction of major public works projects such as roads, dams, treatment facilities and buildings. With an increasing demand to restore our nation’s decaying infrastructure, this program is designed to address the need for qualified civil engineering practitioners in the coming years.

The program will help students graduate in approximately two years. Internships for 15 qualified students are available during the summer and part-time work during the school year, providing “real world” experience. Students also may qualify for a stipend to help them take a full course load each semester and graduate within four semesters.
