Construction Management Technology

P. Udo-Inyang, Program Coordinator
Room 509, Engineering and Architecture Building

215-204-7831

Program Goals & Objectives

The baccalaureate curriculum in Construction Management Technology (CMT) 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)

* Address:
Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology Inc.
111 Market Pl., Suite 1050

Cooperative Education Program

A Cooperative Education (Co-op) is an optional program available at the College of Engineering where you have the opportunity to gain professional work experience before graduation. It is designed to give you the chance to apply the knowledge learned in the classroom to real life problems. You will be exposed to the latest technology and new ideas at a worksite helping you understand your field of work more extensively. During the Co-op, you will make valuable connections with professionals in your field. A cooperative education can enhance and strengthen you academically, professionally and personally.

Below are suggested five-year plans for the Co-op program leading to the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology in Construction Management Technology. The minimum requirement for graduation is 127 semester hours.
