B.S. in Construction Engineering Technology
The Construction Engineering Technology Program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
The Program provides technical and managerial education in that field of construction most closely aligned with engineering, with a particular emphasis on highway, heavy, and underground construction. It is in many ways similar to civil engineering but has the following major differences:
• Emphasis is on practical application of engineering science rather than upon the
comprehensive understanding of the scientific theories.
• Considerable time is devoted to management and business administration courses.
• Less time is devoted to the mathematics and the sciences.
Graduates of this program are qualified to fill many professional positions in governmental agencies, industrial concerns, manufacturing companies of construction supplies and equipment, and in construction firms. These jobs may involve contract supervision, intermediate managerial responsibilities, inspection or sales, as well as the supervised design of construction projects. The undergraduate business and management training prepares graduates to move up the executive ladder to success.
