PROGRAM EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

Program educational objectives were established with the assistance of the Industrial Advisory Committee and are reviewed periodically. The construction management engineering technology program produces graduates who:

Write, read, and orally present technical reports, letters, and projects that meet the standards of the profession.

Understand and are able to complete various activities related to construction such as interpret construction documents, draw plans using computer-aided drafting, complete an estimate, manage project activities, and be able to technically review construction materials used on the project.

Recognize the need for and have an ability to engage in continued formal education as well as lifelong learning.

Analyze and synthesize using industry standard software estimates, schedules, and project administration data.

Successfully interact with clients, owners, co-workers, government agencies, and other construction-related entities.

Manage multidisciplinary teams in order to successfully complete a project.

WORK EXPERIENCE

Students typically gain work experience through summer employment with construction companies.
