Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology in Construction Management Technology with Co-op

Program Goals & Objectives

The baccalaureate curriculum in Construction Management Technology (CMT) prepares a student for a practitioner's role in industry, government or institution in the area of construction management.

Graduates are qualified for jobs as construction field supervisors, estimators, expediters, construction cost analysts, schedulers, plan examiners for government agencies that control construction, and in safety. Graduates can communicate effectively and have the necessary teamwork and leadership skills to work and participate effectively in a team environment. Also, graduates will have professional growth and life-long learning skills that engineering technologists need to succeed in both the workplace and the society in general.

Day and evening courses are available; however, most technical courses are offered in the evening only.

The Construction Management Technology Program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission (ETAC) of ABET, http://www.abet.org

Cooperative Education Program

A Cooperative Education (Co-Op) is an optional experiential program available at the College of Engineering where you have the opportunity to gain professional work experience before graduation. It is designed to give you the chance to apply the knowledge learned in the classroom to real life problems. You will be exposed to the latest technology and new ideas at a worksite helping you understand your field of work more extensively. During the Co-op, you will make valuable connections with professionals in your field. A cooperative education can enhance and strengthen you academically, professionally and personally.

Summary of Requirements

University Requirements

All new students are required to complete the university's General Education (GenEd) curriculum.

All Temple students must take a minimum of two writing-intensive courses for a total of at least six credits. The writing-intensive course credits are counted as part of the major; they are not General Education (GenEd) or elective credits. The writing-intensive courses must be completed at Temple University and students may not transfer in credits to satisfy this requirement. The specific writing-intensive courses required for this major are:
