A Career in Construction Engineering and Management Technology
According to the US Department of Labor, the employment opportunities for construction managers are expected to grow 17 percent through 2020.. This is due to the number of job openings which will exceed the number of qualified individuals seeking to enter the occupation. The US Department of Labor expects this situation to continue even as college construction management programs expand to meet the current high demand for graduates.
The Purdue University North Central construction engineering and management technology program will prepare graduates with the technical and management skills necessary to enter careers in the fast growing construction field, operation and/or maintenance of the built environment and global infrastructure. The construction engineering and management technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET, Inc.
