Civil and Architectural Engineering and Construction Management

In response to a growing population and expanding economy, society constantly invests in new building and construction projects. Students in the program gain the creative and professional skills necessary to meet these demands by learning to develop building concepts and systems; design the structures, support systems and accesses; and implement the designs and organize construction. 

Our Programs

From bridge projects to highway improvements, CAECM students develop professionally and gain the interpersonal and creative skills required to succeed. 

Architectural Engineering

Architectural engineering students learn to apply engineering principles to the design, planning and construction of buildings. Students learn to utilize problem-solving skills to form alternative solutions for structural systems; heating and air conditioning systems; plumbing and fire protection systems; and electrical and lighting systems. Design efforts may also focus on how buildings use energy and how to optimize construction of the building.

Civil Engineering

The civil engineering program has two main research areas: infrastructure design, which covers basic analysis and design of infrastructure elements and infrastructure systems, which covers basic analysis and design of systems which support the infrastructure. As a student, you will learn to design, develop and maintain structures and infrastructures necessary to support civilization like bridges, highways, railways, tunnels, airports, dams, water treatment systems and buildings. Civil engineering addresses the conception, design and construction of large public and private projects.

Construction Management

As a student, you will develop into a manages with a strong understanding of technical and management principles and application to today's complex construction projects. The curriculum is based on a design-construct-maintain continuum. You'll master engineering concepts and construction practices and develop the business, legal, and management proficiency necessary to execute a construction project, problem solve, and think creatively to ensure projects are completed in a cost-effective and timely manner.
