Undergraduate Degree in Construction Engineering

The U.S. Department of Education defines a Construction Engineering educational program as:

A program that prepares individuals to apply scientific, mathematical, and management principles to the planning, design, and building of facilities and structures.  Includes instruction in civil engineering, structural principles, site analysis, computer-assisted design, geology, evaluation and testing, materials, contracting, project management, graphic communications, and applicable laws and regulations.

Construction engineering is involved in the planning, management, and building of structures and facilities essential to societies and communities as well as the overall improvement in the standard of living.  The availability of construction engineers is imperative to the rebuilding and maintaining of the infrastructure in the United States, while at the same time developing an emerging infrastructure to support the continued population growth and environment.  Federal, state, and local agencies project a faster than average growth rate for construction engineers over the next decade.

Graduates of the Bachelor of Science in Construction Engineering program at Texas A&M University-Commerce will...

  • Engage in life-long growth within the construction profession as evidenced by, but not limited to, continuing education, participation in professional societies and conferences, industry certifications, or graduate education.
  • Serve as a catalyst for technology within the construction profession as evidenced by, but not limited to utilization of industry accepted project controls software, responsibility for developing recommendations for industry accepted systems, or serving as a liaison between company, vendors, and technology user groups.
  • Meet professional requirements necessary for engineering licensure.

Construction engineering at Texas A&M University-Commerce emphasizes the application of engineering and scientific concepts and principles required in the construction industry as well as current and future sustainable technologies. 

Construction Engineering Student Outcomes:

  • an ability to identify,formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics

  • an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social,environmental, and economic factors

  • an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences

  • an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts

  • an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives

  • an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions

  • an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
