The Construction Engineering Technology degree program has strong foundations in materials technology, surveying, CADD, construction estimating, mathematics, computers, basic and engineering sciences, and has an excellent blend of theory and practice of construction discipline. Coursework in Planning and Scheduling, Construction Management, Financial Aspects of Engineering Projects, and Structures including wood, masonry, concrete and steel is required. In addition, the students are required to take courses in soils and foundations, and mechanical and electrical systems.
The curriculum is designed to train students in the fundamentals of construction engineering technology principles via hands-on experimentation in a variety of laboratory settings, such as materials testing, manual and computerized estimating and scheduling, oral and written presentations, and applied learning exercises.
Our job-ready graduates are in high demand for the much-needed technical workforce in our region and throughout the country. Many of our seniors are offered jobs even before graduating. Additionally, graduates of Missouri Western’s engineering technology program are one of the highest paid graduates on campus.
Careers in Construction Engineering Technology include building construction, highway construction, construction project management, surveying, or architectural support.
Construction Engineering Technology (Bachelor of Science, B.S.)
This four-year degree program prepares individuals as entry-level field construction coordinators, estimators, job schedulers, and construction management trainees. It also prepares individuals for positions related to construction document control, purchasing, equipment superintendent (renting) and quality assurance/quality control. The B.S. degree program in Construction Engineering Technology is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) (see Appendix D for address).
