Construction Engineering and Management Technology, BS

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

This major industry includes a variety of large general construction firms, small specialized contractors, materials suppliers, equipment manufacturers, and the design services of architects and engineers.

Each year architectural, construction, consulting engineering, industrial, laboratory testing, materials supplier, and surveying firms contact Purdue Northwest seeking baccalaureate degree graduates for work in the Chicagoland Region and in other parts of the country. This trend should continue since there are statistics that the present enrollment of technicians and technologists will not meet the needs of this country for many years.

Many of our graduates pursue careers as estimators, field superintendents, construction schedulers, expediters, project managers, survey crew chiefs, materials technicians, architectural and civil draftspersons, and cost engineers once they have finished their degrees.

The Construction Engineering & Management Technology Bachelor of Science program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org. This ensures that the program is independently reviewed and meets the quality expectation for that profession.
