Construction engineers design and execute processes for building and maintaining the infrastructure of our world. The tools of the trade for today’s successful construction engineer include the following: strong math, science, and computer skills; creativity; an aptitude for applying science and engineering methods to solve problems; a love of building structures such as bridges, airports, buildings, dams, and highways; an interest in working indoors and outdoors; initiative and a strong work ethic; the ability to collaborate with diverse people; good communications skills; and a desire to learn in a constantly changing environment. Students in the Construction Engineering program have the opportunity to develop additional expertise in mechanical, electrical, and other areas of engineering through minors in these fields. Construction Engineering students complete three 12-week paid internships, usually during the summer and away from home. They work as paid employees of construction contractors and construction managers and perform increasingly responsible duties in field operations, office operations, and project management
For over 18 years in a row BSCNE graduates have been hired at a 100-percent rate upon graduation by some of the 100 top U.S. construction firms.
