This program is a combined study of basic civil engineering and construction management courses. Graduates shall be knowledgeable on the fundamentals of structural and construction engineering like design and analysis, material testing and quality assurance, building systems, construction technologies, and surveying. Graduates shall demonstrate a deep understanding of management principles and its application that are essential in construction projects such as economics, business, accounting, law, statistics, ethics, leadership, decision making and optimization methods, process analysis and design, safety, and cost engineering.
The program’s thrust is to create and maintain an educational environment that shall enable graduates to practice as successful construction engineers and managers for the advancement of society and to promote professionalism in practice.
Within the five years after graduation, the graduates of Construction Engineering and Management program shall have:
i. Undertaken, singly or in teams, projects that show an ability to solve complex engineering problems
ii. Had substantial involvement in projects that take into consideration safety, health, environmental concerns and the public welfare, partly through adherence to required codes and laws.
iii. Demonstrated professional success via promotions and/or positions of increasing responsibility
iv. Demonstrated life-long learning via progress toward completion of an advanced degree, professional development/continuing education courses, or industrial training courses
v. Exhibited professional behavior and attitude in engineering practice
vi. Initiated and implemented actions toward the improvement of engineering practice
