Construction Management Engineering Technology

BS Degree – Code #1603

This program has a series of courses designed to familiarize the graduate with all aspects of construction management. Technical coursework is combined with specific construction management courses as well as several business courses, giving the graduate a broad-based education that will provide the skills needed for a leadership role in today’s construction business.

Students from the CMET programs won the 2000 Associated Schools of Construction Northeast Regional Heavy/Highway Construction Management Competition. Alfred State students compete annually against other colleges in the northeast that have construction management programs.

This program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org, as well as the American Council for Construction Education (ACCE), [1717 North Loop Road 1604 East, Suite 320, San Antonio, TX 78232].

A laptop computer is required for students entering the construction management engineering technology program. Laptop specifications are available at www.alfredstate.edu/required-laptops.

Students can compete for scholarships given by the Associated General Contractors of New York.

Seniors in the BS program are required to take the Certified Professional Construction Level I exam prior to graduation.
