Program Outcomes

It is the mission of the Construction Engineering Technology (CET) program to prepare students to obtain career positions as professionals in the construction and building industries where they will ensure quality in all phases of construction projects including:

  • The coordination of and participation in the design process.
  • The monitoring of the quality control of materials and workmanship.
  • The management of costs and progression of construction.

CET Program Educational Objectives

In order to achieve this mission, the educational objectives of the program are as follows:

  • Graduates will participate effectively in projects as innovative solution providers through appropriate planning, monitoring and managing of all phases of construction in their chosen sector of the industry.
  • Graduates will successfully perform in their careers due to their educational background in:
    • fundamental construction and engineering skills which provide the ability to pursue professional registration and industry certifications,
    • teamwork and communications skills,
    • and with a propensity to engage in life-long learning and the continual improvement of their skills and knowledge.
  • Graduates will progress successfully in their chosen sector of the construction industry by gaining additional responsibilities and entering leadership roles with their employers.

CET Student Outcomes

In support of the program educational objectives, each student successfully completing the requirements for a Degree in the Construction Engineering Technology program is expected to have:

a.  an ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to broadly-defined engineering technology activities;
b.  an ability to select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies;
c.  an ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes;
d.  an ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives;
e.  an ability to function effectively as part of a team;
f.  an ability to identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems;
g.  an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
h.  an understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development;
i.  an understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity;
j.  a knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context; and
k.  a commitment to quality, timeliness and continuous improvement.

CET Program Criteria Outcomes

In order to prepare each student in the specific requirements for a Degree in Construction Engineering Technology, the program maintains the following criteria that students are expected to obtain:

  1. Effective communication skills related to the construction environment through the proper usage of oral, written and graphic techniques.
  2. Mathematical skills sufficient to solve and analyze technical problems associated with construction projects including building, highway and heavy construction.
  3. A thorough knowledge of common construction methods and design procedures associated with building, highway and heavy construction projects.
  4. A thorough knowledge of common construction materials- both their proper usage and proper testing procedures.
  5. The capability to develop architectural and engineering drawings for construction projects, including working, presentation and shop drawings.
  6. Proficiency in the use of computer graphics associated with civil and construction projects.
  7. An understanding of working drawings for residential, commercial, highway and heavy construction projects.
  8. An understanding of codes and specifications in the implementation of building and highway projects.
  9. Proficiency in the use of surveying equipment to collect data and lay out projects to solve engineering problems.
  10. An understanding of the mechanics of structural design.
  11. A development and understanding of the proper management techniques of construction projects relative to budget, schedule, safety, organization and contractual obligations.
