The Bachelor of Science in construction engineering technology offers specialized instruction in modern techniques of the construction practice. The goal of the program is to produce highly competent and technically trained graduates who possess a solid understanding of fundamental engineering and construction concepts. The program prepares graduates to work with architects, engineers, contractors and others concerned with construction. Typically, program graduates perform work associated with project estimating, structure erection, construction supervision or management. The skills and the competencies are derived from thorough exposure to construction techniques and materials, surveying, estimating methods, computer applications, contractual relationships and legal issues. All students are required to develop skills in technical writing and public speaking. All graduates are encouraged to become Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) certified, complete at least two (2) internships, and demonstrate competency in computer programming and software applications.
