What will I learn?

From large, general construction firms to small, specialized contractors, this major industry encompasses an array of roles, including materials suppliers, equipment manufacturers, architects and engineers.

Program Educational Objective One

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 Two

The program produces graduates that will effectively lead, work and communicate in multidisciplinary environments in the construction industry and related fields.

Program Educational Objective Three

The program produces graduates that will demonstrate professionalism and ethics in making decisions in leadership and management roles in their discipline.

Graduates of the Construction Engineering & Management Technology program must demonstrate:

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.

Outcomes

Each year architectural, construction, consulting engineering, industrial, laboratory testing, materials supplier and surveying firms contact PNW seeking graduates for work in the Chicagoland region and across the country. This trend should continue; statistics suggest the present enrollment of technicians and technologists will not meet the needs of this country for many years.
