Alumni Testimonials

Headshot of Ben Curry“I am grateful that the Construction Engineering Technology (CET) program served as a multipurpose degree dedicating time to teaching me the software, techniques and management skills used in the construction industry, while also giving me the tools needed for solving real-world engineering problems.”
Ben Curry (2015 CET Graduate)
Berry Bros. General Contractors


headshot of Ryan Harlowe“From writing and reviewing work scopes using lessons learned in CVEN 437 to designing steel and concrete structures using knowledge gained in CVTE 372, CVTE 471 and CVTE 473, the wide ranging course coverage allowed me to hit the ground running as soon as I graduated. I don’t know of any other program that so perfectly merges technical engineering concepts with the project execution mindset of project management.”

Dashiell Corporation

Headshot of Mallory Walters“I used my knowledge of plane and construction surveying and of CADD software from my classes at Tech to create topographic maps and to calculate volumes of coal stored at storage sites. Also, having both engineering design and management classes helped me to understand basic daily operations of the company.”
