The Mission of the Construction Engineering Management program is to educate and prepare students to succeed in the construction engineering management profession by providing them with essential technical, managerial and communication skills and tools, which will enable them to perform current and future construction engineering management tasks and to promote the need for life-long learning
The Construction Engineering Management program educational objectives are to produce graduates, who after entering the construction engineering management practice with a fundamental knowledge of construction engineering management principles and current technologies, communication skills and practical construction experience, will
Program Outcomes: Specifically, the program outcomes are established to provide the student with the:
Program Strategic Goals: Current program objectives are listed with a mapping of the outcomes above onto the program strategic goals. The strategic goals are as follows:
G1. Integration of current technologies into the CEM curriculum - The achievement of this goal will be measured by the number and extend that information technology will be integrated into the CEM curriculum. Appropriate software will be identified and integrated into current courses (Outcomes A, C, D, E)
G2. Continuous enhancement of the quality of undergraduate program - to be measured by the implementation of our Continuous Quality Improvement program (Outcomes A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H).
G3. Development of a minor program in CEM - Graduate courses in CEM have been developed for the Master of Science program in Civil Engineering. A minor program in CEM will be developed (Outcomes G).
G4. Professional development of faculty - Encouraging CEM faculty to participate annually in national and international events including conferences and publications (The achievement of this goal will be measured by the data obtained from annual faculty reports).
G5. Industry partnerships - A CEM Advisory and Development Council (CEM-ADC) has been established to help the CEM program keep the curriculum up-to-date and high quality (The achievement of this goal will be measured by the data obtained from CEM-ADC reports).
G6. Global objective - Explore opportunities for students/faculty participate in global activities (The achievement of this goal will be measured by the data obtained from faculty annual reports and Outcomes F, G).
