CNET Program Educational Objectives

The objective of the Construction Engineering Technology (CNET) program is to prepare highly-competent, technically-trained, construction-oriented graduates who possess a solid mastery of fundamental engineering concepts and specialized construction training. The graduates are expected to adapt to any professional environment and perform their jobs with confidence and continue to learn and grow in the construction industry anywhere in the world while demonstrating good citizenship.  Later in their careers, our graduates can 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: 

1. A broad foundation in mathematics and physical sciences;
A recognition of the need for long-term continuing education in their professional careers;
A basic knowledge in CNET discipline areas of surveying, geo-technical materials, structures, and environmental/water resources;
A basic knowledge of contracts, law, business organization, and principles of management;
A broad education on the social and humanistic implications of engineering technology;
6. A respect for the profession and a sense of professional ethics;
An appreciation of other disciplines as they relate to construction engineering technology;
An ability to immediately contribute to the profession of construction engineering technology;
An ability to design and conduct experiments as well as analyze and interpret data;
An ability to adapt to rapid changes in the practice of construction engineering technology and especially, in the use of computers in construction work;
Effective oral, written, and graphical communication abilities to effectively communicate with engineers and non-engineers;
Basic skills in the use of computers for communication, design, problem solving, and analysis;
13. Confidence;
14. The ability to take initiative; 
15. Leadership ability; and
16. An entrepreneurial spirit.
