Why did people choose this program of study?Why did people choose this program of study?

"This program of study had a high rate of work readily available after graduating and I like the field of study. My friends had also graduated int the same field and they said I could easily get employment in their company after interning during school."
"I wanted to get my civil engineering tech certification to work in the CE design field, but didn't want to go through 4+ yrs of college to wait before beginning work. Getting this certification allowed me to do that, and begin working much earlier than all my friends who were in 4-yr colleges, paying tons of money for their courses and wracking up thousands and thousands of dollars in debts."
"I found that this area interests me more than all of the other areas combined. The job market for this major is better than most."
"Because Civil engineering technicians help civil engineers to plan, design, and build highways, bridges, utilities, and other infrastructure projects. They also help to plan, design, and build commercial, industrial, residential, and land development projects. It seen interesting to me"
"This program ties directly into my job. What it taught me made me better and more qualified to perform my job."
"I had most interest"
"My father is a civil engineer and I wanted to understand a little about what he does. The field intrigued me and I thought I should have a basis or some knowledge about it."
"I have exposure in the field. My father owns a company in it."
"I picked this program because unlike the other career programs, with this type of knowledge, I can help more people to live in content with NYC. I really wanted to help people put all their trust in NYC for great quality."

What surprised people about this program of study?What surprised people about this program of study?

"The practical aspect of on the job with billable hours surprised me the most about my field of study. In the engineering field, work is billed out to clients in the form of billable hours. I really didn't understand this aspect of this field until the first day on the job."
"I like the fact the professors take the time to help you understand the material and really do care about your well being."
"I was surprise that it need lot of effort and hard work to complete this course and complete my certificate Civil Engineering Technology. I have to will be tested for English, mathematics, and reading deficiencies."
"The most surprising aspect in my field of study was dealing with customers. I think the program would have benefited in having a course where the students learned to deal with customers."
"The amount of people who try to apply to a position but they are not qualified. There seems to be a gray area about what education is needed and what can be learned on the job."
"I was surprised by how much I enjoyed and how much it related to what I wanted to do. It was very difficult but I was dedicated and got through it."
"Civil engineering technology surprised me with the amount of write ups and the actual work than I was use to in the classroom. The work environment is fast paced and requires a lot of communication with different people."
"The amount of bookwork. I wish it was more technical based."
"I was surprised how much knowledge it took to figure out the mechanics of Civil Engineering Technology. If I had known this before I started the program, I would had studied these mechanics more before I applied."
