"The construction engineering management concentration has provided me with the hands-on learning experience that is priceless in the construction industry. Students have the chance to participate in field trips to different companies, workshops on useful computer programs and skills like field estimating, and sessions with professionals in the construction industry. This concentration has allowed me to become involved in different SPEED teams and has led me to get internship offers months in advance".

Architectural Engineering & Building Construction:

For students planning a career in sustainable building design and construction management.

Concentration Requirements

The concentration requirements change periodically to address industry trends, technological innovations, and new techniques. The current requirements can be found here. In order to obtain a certificate for the concentration, students must complete those requirements that are in place at the time they declare the concentration. As the requirements change, students will remain responsible for the requirements they began with, or they may opt to take on the new requirements at the discretion of their advisor and the director of CEM.

Components of the Concentration

The CEM concentration focuses on three key components:



Guided by ABET’s construction engineering criteria, gain the skills, knowledge and abilities needed to tackle the challenges of the construction industry — in the field and in the office.



Develop the know-how to apply math and science to meet human-kind’s pressing needs, and design solutions that build a sustainable, better world for all.  



Hone the leadership and interpersonal skills that make teamwork a success and meet corporate or other needs.
