Construction Engineering and Management Technology, BS
The Purdue University North Central construction engineering and management technology program will prepare graduates with the technical skills necessary to enter careers in the construction field, operation and/or maintenance of the built environment and global infrastructure.
Our mission is to provide a quality construction education and develop leaders for the construction industry to serve the community needs in northwestern Indiana by:
- Providing a quality education within the engineering and construction management area.
- Contributing to the advancement of technology, engineering, and education through scholarly work, publication or active participation in professional societies, and
- Serving as a technical resource for the surrounding communities of northwestern Indiana.
Program Educational Objectives for the BS-CEMT
Graduates of the Baccalaureate Degree in Construction Engineering and Management Technology will satisfy the following program educational objectives:
- Demonstrate technical and management skills in construction and related fields.
- Through their education, graduates are able to collect, analyze, and evaluate information in order to solve construction and engineering problems.
- Graduates will use multiple forms of communication in order to work in multidisciplinary teams and appreciate the value of multiple perspectives in construction and engineering problem solving.
- Work independently or in a team to accomplish complex construction-related task.
- Graduates are able to apply public policy in order to meet the social, environmental, and economic constrains within a local or global community.
- Demonstrate knowledge of contemporary professional, societal, and global issues with an understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities.
Graduates will be able to continue their formal education at the graduate and/ or professional development level to advance professionally through lifelong opportunities

- An average grade of "C" or better is required in all BCM, CET and MA classes to enter the BS program.
- An average grade of "C" or better is required in all BCM, CET, CEMT, CNT, PHYS, STAT and IET classes to graduate.
- Each student is responsible for scheduling the necessary prerequisites and courses to meet the requirements for graduation.
Note about Electives:
Electives may be taken in any semester. The ordering of courses in this plan of study is a suggestion. Most students will, in fact, choose to rearrange their plan of study to accommodate work schedules, course pre-requisites and the timing of elective courses being offered.
Any Technology (ART, BCM, CET, CEMT, CNT, CGT, CIST, CPT, CNIT, IET, MET), Business, Economics or Management course may be used for this requirement.
Note to students transferring from other institutions:
This plan of study reflects the requirements for students who have an AS-BCMT or AS-CET degree from a school that is accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). If your degree is not ABET accredited or if you have not completed the AS Degree in BCMT, you may be required to complete additional coursework.
Construction Work Experience:
All construction students are required to complete a minumum of 800 hours of construction work experience before graduation. Summer jobs and construction internships may be used to satisfy this requirement. Properly documented, any (voluntary) time donated to a community construction project can count toward the construction work experience requirement.
