Description

The Construction Engineering and Management (CEMT) graduate certificate is designed for working professionals that may not wish to commit to a traditional graduate degree program. Students design their program by choosing 12 credit hours in graduate coursework to earn their certificate. This leaves open the opportunity to continue for another 18 credit hours to complete the Master of Science (MS) CEMT Option III (expected approval Fall 2020).

Students have the opportunity to explore the field of construction beyond a bachelor’s degree. They can choose advanced courses in the construction engineering and management area(s) of their choice. Advanced course topics include heavy/highway construction, materials design, building information modeling (BIM), project administration, project management, design/build, sustainable construction, leadership and strategic planning for construction, productivity and human factors, codes and specialty permitting, and construction site safety.
