The program in Construction Management Technology is designed to provide the basic undergraduate education required in professional practice and continued formal education. Emphasis is placed on the fundamentals of construction and civil engineering principles, as well as design techniques and the basics of project management. Undergraduate course work culminates in a one semester Senior Capstone Project course.
The Department of CEE is guided by the hierarchy of the Mission Statements of the University, College, and Department, the educational criteria established by ABET, and the specific program requirements of ASCE. A clear linkage is established and maintained by the CEE in order to ensure a consistent accreditation posture within the CMT curriculum. through this mechanism, the PEO's are clearly linked to the established Program Outcomes as illustrated below.
The Department is adopting a format that ensures that six areas of Civil Engineering are taught to all students:
- Water Resources Engineering
The extensive expertise of the Department’s faculty in these areas exposes the students to real-life cases. To address market demands, two major tracks are offered to the students in the Senior year: General Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering.
