CNET Program Educational Objectives
The Construction Engineering Technology (CNET) program is designed to produce graduates who 
  • Are highly-competent, technically-trained, and construction-oriented,
  • Possess a solid mastery of fundamental engineering concepts and specialized construction training,
  • Able to adapt to any professional environment and perform their jobs with confidence, 
  • Continue to learn and grow in the construction industry anywhere in the world while demonstrating good citizenship, and
  • Become leaders in their chosen field or employment.
CNET Program Outcomes
The CNET curriculum is designed with the objective to preparing students for life-long careers in the constantly-changing, technical and managerial environment of the construction industry. Students who successfully complete the curriculum will be prepared for entry into the industry or for further study at the graduate level in construction engineering technology or related fields of study such as law, business, and other engineering disciplines. To achieve this, a construction engineer must 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 a member or leader on a technical 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; 
k. A commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.
l. Basic skills in the use of computers for communication, design, problem solving, and analysis;
m. The ability to take initiative;
n. Confidence;
o. Leadership ability; and
p. An entrepreneurial spirit
