Program Description

No other country matches the United States in new construction projects. American companies are also involved in projects worldwide. With these expenditures has come the growing demand for construction workers and technicians prepared to spearhead this monumental rebuilding effort. Homes, highways, buildings, plants, airports and bridges will require the handiwork of master builders and the Construction Management Engineering Technology curriculum will provide some of these technicians.

The educational objectives of the Construction Management Engineering Technology Program are to:

  • secure employment in a technical career related to construction management; and
  • continue education to a four-year construction management-related program

Students are provided a sound education in both the theory and the application of quality construction principles for a variety of construction projects. Students learn the basic methods, materials, techniques, and developments involved in the construction industry.

This program offers the students a unique combination of management, design and hands-on experience. Through a series of construction management courses, students learn about the construction industry as a whole and analyze the interrelationships of the various organizations within the industry. In the laboratory, students master blueprint reading, quantity take-offs and the estimating of residential and commercial projects. A minimum grade point average of 2.0 is required for graduation with an A.A.S. degree in Construction Management Engineering Technology.

Graduates qualify for positions such as construction managers, supervisors, building inspectors, contractors, field clerks, purchasing agents, surveyors, expediters, estimators, and construction materials salesmen. Other graduates often transfer credits toward a bachelor's degree.
