BOONEVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) – Civil Engineering Technology students at Northeast Mississippi Community College (NEMCC) are learning the skills needed to build and maintain the infrastructure we use daily.

Landon Woodruff is a graduate of the program, who said his curiosity led him to this career.

“It wasn’t until I was about to come to Northeast that I found out about this program," he said. "I’ve always been interested in how roads and bridges were made. I also saw the amount of opportunities available and decided to go for it."

Post-graduation, he found many opportunities to work in his field.

Instructor Stewart Moore said the civil engineering technology program has a high job placement rate, and many of his students have traveled across the country.
