Course offerings depend on adequate enrollment.

This program is designed for those with a working knowledge of the construction industry. STLCC offers a number of programs geared to the construction industry, and we invite you to meet with an STLCC advisor or program coordinator for up-to-date information about these programs and how they can fit with your goals.

Please note: Credits earned in STLCC’s Engineering Technology AAS, CS and CP programs generally do not transfer to engineering bachelor degree programs. If your career goal is to be an engineer, please consider STLCC’s Engineering Science AS degree. Credits earned as part of STLCC’s Engineering Science AS degree transfer to universities nationwide, and provide a strong foundation for future study in a variety of engineering disciplines a fraction of the cost of a public university.

We invite you to meet with an STLCC advisor for one-on-one help in planning your pathway to this rewarding career. Click Here
