B.S. in Engineering Technology
Concentration in Construction Engineering Technology (CET) Program
Program Mission and Data
The Construction Engineering Technology (EET) Program is an application-orientated program. The program is designed to prepare graduates for management level positions such as project managers, construction managers, construction field supervisors, estimators, etc., or to act as General Contractors in their own firms. Students receive instructions in science, mathematics, architectural and structural analysis and design, estimating, surveying, construction materials, methods, and techniques, with management and team work as constant emphasis. Employment opportunities abound in private industry such as construction or construction management agencies, engineering and architectural firms as well as in all levels of government agencies.
Program Educational Objectives
- CET-EO-1: To prepare graduates who demonstrate knowledge of content that support professional competencies, skills, and abilities in the field of construction and related areas.
- CET-EO-2: To prepare graduates who continuously develop skills in problem solving, teamwork, and communication to effectively support and interface with engineering technologist, craftsmen, and engineers from various disciplines.
- CET-EO-3: To prepare graduates who understand their professional and ethical responsibilities.
- CET-EO-4: To prepare graduates who understand the need for life-long learning, diversity, and knowledge of professional, societal, and global issues.
Program outcomes for the graduates of the Construction Engineering Technology Program are as follows:
- An ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of construction engineering technology to broadly-defined activities in the field of construction;
- An ability to select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies;
- An ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes;
- An ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives
- An ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team;
- An ability to identify, analyze and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems;
- An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communicate in both technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
- An understanding of the need for, and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development;
- An understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity;
- A knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context; and
- A commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement
In addition to the required fundamental engineering technology and concentration core courses the program allows students to select technical and free electives. Students are advised to take appropriate electives with the guidance and approval of their academic advisors and department head.
