College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture
BS in Construction Management and Technology
The Construction Management and Technology program aims to prepare students to fulfill the growing and expected demands for entry-level management positions in the construction industry.
About the Major
The Construction Management and Technology program is the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture's (CETA) newest major. Through this program, you can strengthen your critical thinking skills and discover key components of collaboration, management, and design. The curriculum was carefully designed to expose you to various career options within construction. An internship experience is a requirement for program completion, ensuring that each student is guaranteed field exposure.
The program will benefit from existing and new courses held in CETA's newly-renovated laboratories in the United Technologies (UT) Hall, Dana Hall, and the Hursey Center. ABET accreditation will soon be available so our graduates have the opportunity to be industry certified by NICET, or even take the Professional Engineering Licensure exam.

The Construction Management and Technology program aims to prepare students to fulfill the growing and expected demands for entry-level construction management positions in the construction industry. During their careers, our students:
- Will work collaboratively among students from the first semester through several first-year experiences in several courses such as CE 250, CE 260W, CMT 326, CMT 410, CMT 426P.
- Practice oral communication and teamwork skills through project-based courses, such as ADT 110, ADT123, CMT 426P, and the expectations/requirements of students presenting their work every year, culminating in students presenting their final design at the CETA Design Expo.
- Are exposed to quantitative literacy in several required courses in mathematics, CMT, ADT, and CE courses.
- Develop management skills through curriculum courses in accounting, finance, and management with the Barney School of Business.
- Demonstrate their mastery of oral and written communication skills through a senior project course series that includes project presentations to an audience of peers, faculty, and volunteer business/industry representatives.
At the end of the program, students will be exposed to substantial industry experience that can ultimately help students choose a focus in the profession.
