Civil and Construction Engineering Technology

P. Udo-Inyang, Program Coordinator
Room 530, Engineering and Architecture Building


Program Goals and Objectives

The baccalaureate curriculum in Civil and Construction Engineering Technology prepares a student for a practitioner's role in construction management or structural design.

Graduates are qualified for jobs as structural designers and detailers, construction field supervisors, estimators, expediters, construction cost analysts, schedulers, plan examiners for government agencies that control construction, and liaison personnel in plant engineering departments of large manufacturing organizations. Day and evening courses are available; however, most technical courses are offered in the evening only. While the day program requires a minimum of four years, a completed evening program may extend over eight to twelve years. 

This program is accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission (TAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc. (ABET) (* see address below)
