Construction Engineering and Management
Why Choose This Major?
Construction engineers lead the most dynamic phase of civil and environmental engineering projects, procurement and construction of the physical facility, and there has never been a more exciting time to be involved in this field.
Technologies such as building information modeling, virtual reality, and visualization are revolutionizing the industry by providing construction engineers with unprecedented insight into the building process. Facilities can be virtually constructed before ground is broken to help identify potential problems, refine construction techniques, ensure safe and productive job sites, and facilitate success. New processes employing techniques from integrated manufacturing reduce waste and facilitate sequencing of activities through integrated project delivery, while new materials and methods promise to change the way business is done in the future.
We provide our students with the engineering foundation essential for professional licensure, valuable experience through co-op requirements, and formalized training in business essentials through an integrated business certificate program. Together, these elements prepare our students for leadership and success in the construction industry.
Areas of Study
Construction Law and Regulations
Planning and Scheduling
Estimating and Cost Control
CAD and BIM in Construction
Environment, Health and Safety
Productivity and Lean Construction
Quality Management and Control
All students in the program participate in a 26-week co-op program, which provides valuable experience working in the profession. All degree requirements, including the co-op program, are designed to be completed within four years.
Well-qualified Construction Engineering and Management majors may apply to the 4+1 program to earn a bachelor’s degree in Construction Engineering and Management and a Master of Civil Engineering degree within 5 years. The program is limited to University of Delaware undergraduates in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering with a minimum GPA of 3.25 at the time of application.
National employer demand for construction engineering and management skills increase from 2010 to 2013
