The B.S. in Construction Engineering Technology curriculum requires the successful completion of 128 credits. It includes mathematics, basic sciences, English composition and communications, humanities and social sciences, and technical courses.

The Bachelor of Science in Construction Engineering Technology program educates and trains students in the areas of building construction including construction project design, development and management. The curriculum offers a 50/50 combination of theoretical and laboratory coursework and it emphasizes applications of mathematics, science and engineering principles to implementation, development and improvement of current technology. the program is most suitable for students who prefer applications and hands-on laboratory experience over theory.

Educational Objectives

The B.S. in Construction Engineering Technology program will produce graduates who:

  • Enter into and advance their careers in construction, operation and/or maintenance of buildings and infrastructures utilizing their theoretical knowledge and practical skills in managing and inspecting construction projects, analyzing and estimating cost and specifying construction methods and materials.
  • Continue their formal education and obtain advanced degrees such as M.S. in Construction Management, M.B.A (Industrial Management), M.S. in Environmental Studies, M.S. in Technology Management or other related fields.
  • Continue to conduct themselves as both responsible professionals and global citizens, who are aware of and understand ethical issues and societal needs and problems.

Student Outcomes

Each construction engineering technology graduate will demonstrate the following attributes and achievements as required by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET upon or before graduation:

  • An ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
  • An ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
  • An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
  • An ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes; and
  • An ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams.
