Undergraduate program in construction engineering and management to launch in fall 2017
The University of Delaware Faculty Senate has approved the establishment of an undergraduate major in construction engineering and management beginning in the fall 2017 semester.
The program, which will be phased in over time will be offered through the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. The bachelor’s of construction engineering and management (BCEM) is the third degree program offered by the department.
“Construction engineering and management is an increasingly important sub-discipline of civil engineering,” says department chair and professor Tripp Shenton. “Traditionally, civil engineering graduates have entered the workforce with a strong engineering foundation but limited exposure to construction engineering, so we’re filling an important gap with this new major.”
