Cal Poly Pomona's Bachelor of Science in Construction Engineering Technology (BSCET) program has produced over 1000 graduates. The program included a strong background in engineering principles, with an emphasis on the application of these principles to practical construction engineering problems.
This program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
Program Educational Objectives and Student Outcomes
Program Educational Objectives
Construction Engineering Technology graduates are expected to attain the following program educational objectives (PEOs) within a period of 3-5 years after graduation.
Our graduates will be professionals who:
1: Pursue engineering and management careers in the civil engineering industry and related fields.
2: Maintain competency via continuing education and graduate studies.
3: Work with paramount consideration for the safety, health, and welfare of the public, obtain professional licensure, and actively participate in professional societies.
4: Practice locally, regionally, or internationally, integrating the broader political, economic, legal, environmental, and societal impacts of projects in their decisions.
Students Learning Outcomes
The student outcomes are based on the standard ABET (http://www.abet.org) a-k outcomes.
b: An ability to select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering, and technology to engineering technology problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies;
c: An ability to conduct standard tests and measurements; to conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments; and to apply experimental results to improve processes
d: An ability to design systems, components, or processes for broadly-defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives;
e: An ability to function effectively as a member or leader on a technical team;
f: An ability to identify, analyze, and solve broadly-defined engineering technology problems;
g: An ability to apply written, oral, and graphical communication in both technical and non- technical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature;
h: An understanding of the need for and an ability to engage in self-directed continuing professional development;
i: An understanding of and a commitment to address professional and ethical responsibilities including a respect for diversity;
j: A knowledge of the impact of engineering technology solutions in a societal and global context; and
k: A commitment to quality, timeliness, and continuous improvement.
The construction engineering technology program curriculum (202 quarter units) is designed to give the student both an understanding of the fundamental principles of engineering as an applied science and the practical expertise to apply these principles to actual situations. In keeping with professional expectations, the construction engineering technology program incorporates these curricular areas into the educational experience: mathematics and basic sciences; engineering sciences and engineering design; and humanities and social sciences. The coursework requirements for the program is available here.
