Engineering Technology

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:

(1) an ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;

(2) an ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;

(3) an ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;

(4) an ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes; and

(5) an ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams.

 CET Program Criteria Outcomes

In order to prepare each student in the specific requirements for a Degree in Construction Engineering Technology, the program provides instruction in the following curricular areas:

a) the utilization of techniques that are appropriate to administer and evaluate construction contracts, documents, and codes;

b) the estimation of costs, estimation of quantities, and evaluation of materials for construction projects;

c) the utilization of measuring methods, hardware, and software that are appropriate for field, laboratory, and office processes related to construction;

d) the application of fundamental computational methods and elementary analytical techniques in sub-disciplines related to construction engineering;

e) the production and utilization of documents related to design, construction, and operations;

f) the performance of economic analyses and cost estimates related to design, construction, and maintenance of systems associated with construction engineering;

g) the selection of appropriate construction materials and practices;

h) the application of appropriate principles of construction management, law, and ethics; and

i) the performance of standard analysis and design in at least one sub-discipline related to construction engineering.
