Construction Management Engineering Technology

Prof. Orla Smyth-LoPiccolo, Chair 
Architecture & Construction Management Department
School of Engineering Technology

Bachelor of Science Degree

The Construction Engineering Management Technology program has been designed to respond to the need for skilled professionals possessing the level of sophistication necessary to accommodate state-of-the-art technology which has impacted the construction industry. It will incorporate extensive use of the computer in the technical specialty together with upper level mathematics, economics, and communications.

The Construction Engineering Management Technology program encompasses study in traditional engineering technology offerings (Statics, Strength of Materials, Structural design Materials testing, etc.). The program is complemented with offerings in project control, scheduling, cost control quality control, construction productivity, and economics. It prepares students for employment in an emerging occupation within the construction industry. Graduates will possess expertise in construction and specialized administrative skills commensurate with the requirements dictated by the industry to coordinate and execute the construction of the design created by the engineer and the architect.

This program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org.

Construction Management Engineering Technology (BS) Program Outcomes:

  • Graduates will have broad background in one or more areas of infrastructure and building construction, estimating, cost control, project management and technology. Graduates will assume leadership positions in the construction industry.
  • Graduates will be creative problem solvers in industry.
  • Graduates will be effective communicators in professional setting.
  • Graduates will adapt state of the art technologies to improve processes in industry.
  • Graduates will pursue continuing education and professional development opportunities to develop a leader or member of a technical team.
