New program will train civil engineers
There is an industry need for more civil engineering technicians. Dakota County Technical College is making plans to meet that need.
Starting in the fall of 2009 the school, in partnership with Hennepin Technical College, will offer an applied associates of science degree in Civil Engineering Technology.
"Industry came to us saying we have a need and we have fulfilled that," said Mike Opp, DCTC dean of transportation and technical careers.
