Bachelor of Science inConstruction Engineering Technology and Management


Construction managers play a crucial role in the overall building process. Whether they work for companies or as independent consultants, construction managers plan, direct, and coordinate a wide variety of projects, including the building of all types of residential, commercial, and industrial structures, roads, bridges, wastewater treatment plants, schools, and hospitals. 

The Bachelor of Science in Construction Engineering Technology and Management program is distinguished for providing a strong concentration in construction engineering applications and construction project management. Construction managers play a crucial role in the overall building process. Whether they work for companies or as independent consultants, construction managers plan, direct, and coordinate a wide variety of projects, including the building of all types of residential, commercial, and industrial structures, roads, bridges, wastewater treatment plants, schools, and hospitals. They are responsible for overseeing the entire project, which includes scheduling and coordinating all design and construction processes, as well as the selection, hiring, and supervision of specialty trade contractors.

The Bachelor of Science in Construction Engineering Technology and Management is designed to provide students interested in the field and working professionals with skills and experience in the construction industry. This practical program is set up for full- and part-time students and consists of a well-rounded core of management classes, along with a strong concentration in construction science and construction engineering. Small class sizes and strong faculty with excellent industrial experience make this program highly responsive to students’ individual needs.

Program Educational Objectives are: Within a few years, BSCETM graduates will be able to: 

  1. Employ theory and practice learned through their curriculum to propose solutions to technical problems, analyze engineering alternatives and perform critical tasks in their field. 
  2. Become effective team collaborators and innovators, supporting efforts to address technical, business and social challenges.
  3. Assume management, entrepreneurial, and leadership roles in construction and related industries.
  4. Engage in life-long learning through professional development opportunities and graduate programs in engineering and business. 

Student Outcomes

To enable graduates to achieve the Program Educational Objectives and in accordance to American Council for Construction Education (ACCE) Student Outcomes recommendations, the program empowers our students with a specific set of skills and knowledge. Students graduating from this program must have obtained the following outcomes:

  1. utilize techniques that are appropriate to administer and evaluate construction contracts, documents, and codes;
  2. estimate costs, estimate quantities, and evaluate materials for construction projects;
  3. utilize measuring methods, hardware, and software that are appropriate for field, laboratory, and office processes related to construction;
  4. apply fundamental computational methods and elementary analytical techniques in sub-disciplines related to construction engineering;
  5. produce and utilize design, construction, and operations documents;
  6. perform economic analyses and cost estimates related to design, construction, and maintenance of systems associated with construction engineering;
  7. select appropriate construction materials and practices;
  8. apply appropriate principles of construction management, law, and ethics, and;
  9. perform standard analysis and design in at least one sub-discipline related to construction engineering.

“As a student in the construction management program at Lawrence Tech, I have gained a superior educational background. This background, coupled with six years of construction experience, enabled me to put theory into practice and has given me exceptional insight into the construction industry.” David Yostos, senior
