CET Outcomes & Objectives
Program Educational Objectives
OSU Construction Engineering Technology graduates a few years after graduation will:
- Solve problems typically found in the construction industry in construction engineering design, estimating, planning, scheduling and project management using mathematical, analytical and scientific skills of engineering technology.
- Successfully lead and work in teams and communicate effectively in written, oral and graphical forms.
- Continue life-long career and professional growth by actively interacting with local industries and participating in appropriate professional societies.
- Continue life-long personal growth in sensitivity to ethical responsibilities, global environments and associated social issues.
Upon graduation the Construction Engineering Technology student will have:
- An ability to apply knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to solve broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
- An ability to design systems, components, or processes meeting specified needs for broadly-defined engineering problems appropriate to the discipline;
- An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in broadly-defined technical and non-technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
- An ability to conduct standard tests, measurements, and experiments and to analyze and interpret the results to improve processes; and
- An ability to function effectively as a member as well as a leader on technical teams
The Bachelor of Science program in Construction Engineering Technology is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org under the General Criteria and the Construction Engineering Technology Program Criteria.
