Sanitary Engineering Technology

Sanitary Engineering training program provides comprehensive training in surveying, mechanics, and wastewater treatment.

Comprehensive training in surveying, mechanics, and wastewater treatment.

Beginning with a foundation skills training in math, engineering, and safety, the Sanitary Engineering curriculum covers the design and construction of water supply systems, water treatment plants, sewerage systems, sewage treatment plants, and irrigation. Sanitary engineers seeking employment at a construction company, public works department, or an engineering/architectural firm benefit most from the coursework and training.

Take advantage of on-the-job training opportunities to apply the skills learned in the program. Students should have a high school diploma or GED Equivalent Certificate upon enrollment. Those who successfully complete the program can:
