In addition, the students can find an opportunity to participate in the research to develop advanced management technologies and approaches. The students are able to pursue their educational and research interests in various fields of construction engineering and management

As a construction engineer and manager, the graduates can plan and oversee the construction operations of a project by conducting site layout, scheduling, selecting equipment, organizing the work crew, managing materials, safeguarding the environment. In addition, the graduates can check and modify the plans and specifications for constructability, efficiency, and safety, develop cost estimates and preparing bids, utilize Building Information Modeling (BIM) software for 3D models, manage subcontractor firms, work with the owner to ensure that the project meets requirements, and solve job site problems.
