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.
The following are the Program Educational Objectives (PEO’s) for the Baccalaureate Degree in Construction Engineering & Management Technology (CEMT):
Program Educational Objective 1:
- The program produces graduates that will grow as professionals after graduation to be effective as they advance within the field of construction and adapt to changing environments.
Program Educational Objective 2:
- The program produces graduates that will effectively lead, work and communicate in multidisciplinary environments in the construction industry and related fields.
Program Educational Objective 3:
- The program produces graduates that will demonstrate professionalism and ethics in making decisions in leadership and management roles in their discipline.
Program Educational Objective 4:
- The program produces graduates that will demonstrate professional competence in the application of technical standards and codes.
Student Outcomes (ETAC):
Graduates of the Construction Engineering & Management Technology program include:
- an ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills, and modern tools of the discipline to broadly-defined engineering technology activities;
- 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.
- an ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes.
- an ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives.
- an ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team.
- an ability to identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems.
