Connect You Education Program
The Connect You education program at Hudson Valley is designed
to give students work experience in their chosen career field while they
are still enrolled in classes. Students are usually hired on a full-time
basis during the summer between their first and second years. Some students also continue to work on a part-time basis when school resumes
in the fall.
|Hudson Valley students take a field trip to a LeChase Construction work site, where they view a building project that a fellow student worked on.
Positions often lead to full-time jobs upon graduation. In recent
years, Civil Engineering Technology students have obtained positions
with the following local companies:
- Advance Testing
- BBL Construction Industries
- D.A. Collins
- The Michaels Group
- N.Y.S. Department of Transportation
- Soil and Materials Testing Inc.
- Watervliet Housing Authority
This is only a partial list of the companies that have hired Civil Engineering
Technology students. While utilizing the Connect You education program is not a
requirement, it can provide students with valuable work experience
while they are still enrolled in classes at Hudson Valley.
