Bachelor of Science in Construction Eng. Technology

Construction Engineering Technology
The Construction Engineering Technology program offers specialized instruction in modem techniques of the construction practice. The mission of the program is to produce highly competent and technically trained graduates who possess a solid understanding of the fundamental of engineering and construction/civil concepts.

The program prepares graduates to work with architects, engineers, contractors and other entities concerned with construction (vertical and horizontal). Typically, program graduates perform work associated with project estimating, erection, supervision or management. This ability is derived from thorough exposure to construction techniques and materials, surveying, estimating methods, computer applications, contractual relationship and legal issues. All students are required to develop skills in technical writing and public speaking. In addition, students may complete courses in GI system, landscape, surveying, engineering and technology through the Construction Engineering Technology program and other academic units at FAMU. All graduates are encouraged to have OSHA 30 Hour (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) certification, complete at least two (2) internships, and demonstrate competency in computer programming and software application.

Graduates majoring in Construction Engineering Technology Program are prepared to work with contractors, architects, engineers and other entities concerned with construction. A wide range of career opportunities are available to graduates to work as Safety Engineers, Project Engineers, Job Superintendents, Construction Engineers, Engineer Technicians, Scheduling Engineers, Construction Estimators, Field Engineers, Construction Mangers, and Residential, Building and General Construction. Also, graduates are prepared to pursue graduate degree in a wide variety of areas such as civil engineering, construction management, business administration or law.
