Construction Management Engineering Technology
BS Degree – Code #1603
This program has a series of technical courses designed to familiarize the graduate with all aspects of construction management; a series of related courses in math, science, and several business courses which give the graduate a broad-based education that will provide the skills needed in 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 Technology Accreditation Commission, Accreditation Board for Engineering Technology, Inc. (TAC/ABET), 111 Market Place – Suite 1050, Baltimore, MD 21202; (410) 347-7700, 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.

PROGRAM EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES
Program educational objectives were established with the assistance of the Industrial Advisory Committee and are reviewed periodically. The construction management engineering technology program produces graduates who:
- Write, read, and orally present technical reports, letters, and projects that meet the standards of the profession;
- Understand and are able to complete various activities related to construction such as interpret construction documents, draw plans using computer-aided drafting, complete an estimate, manage project activities, and be able to technically review construction materials used on the project;
- Recognize the need for and have an ability to engage in continued formal education as well as lifelong learning;
- Analyze and synthesize using industry standard software estimates, schedules, and project administration data;
- Successfully interact with clients, owners, co-workers, government agencies, and other construction-related entities;
- Manage multidisciplinary teams in order to successfully complete a project.
Students typically gain work experience through summer employment with construction companies.
