The Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering and Construction Management (CAECM) encompasses the conception, design and construction of the built environment. Each discipline contributes. Architectural Engineers develop building concepts and systems. Civil Engineers design the structures, support systems and accesses. Construction Managers implement the designs and organize construction.
CAECM, in conjunction with our co-op partners, offers students the opportunity to work with local, national, and international businesses over the course of their education. This experience translates into the development of employable skills and further understanding of the principles learned in the classroom as they are applied to real world situations.
CACEM faculty are active in professional societies and standards bodies, giving students the opportunity to learn about cutting edge developments in practice.CAECM faculty are also active in research. Faculty research translates into available jobs and support for graduate and undergraduate students as well as ensuring that curriculum is maintained at the state of the art.
