ABET Accredited

The Bachelor of Science in Construction Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, ABET accreditation signifies that a program meets rigorous academic standards set by the accreditor. Graduating from an accredited program means you'll receive a quality education that prepares you for building a safer, more sustainable world. Learn more about our accreditation by viewing our graduation data and program standards. The result of these standards are laid out in our Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes.

Our Research

Our current research includes:

The use of recycled coarse aggregate (RCA) has a high potential to significantly reduce the environmental impact of construction projects as well as the cost of construction materials. Reusing RCA in concrete mixes as a partial or full replacement of fine or coarse aggregate would be a more effective action in supporting and protecting the environment and reducing construction and demolition waste. This research reports the evaluation of medium-quality concrete properties incorporating RCA. Learn more.
