In fall 2020 the University of Colorado Denver, Department of Civil Engineering is launching a new undergraduate program in Construction Engineering and Management (CEM). As a new program, assessment is under development. The following, therefore, is presented as a preliminary plan.
The construction engineering and management bachelor of science at CU Denver offers the rigors of engineering problem-solving and design with business and management courses, coupled with construction management courses. Students receive an innovative interdisciplinary education that combines coursework in engineering, construction management, business and architecture.
The bachelor of science (BS) in construction engineering and management (CEM) degree will seek an Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) engineering accreditation (EAC) (2019-2020) and derive its student outcomes from there. The BS in CEM will also seek to meet the program criteria for curriculum for both construction engineering and engineering management. The American Council for Construction Education (ACCE) accreditation learning outcomes will be used as a foundation for the CEM content in the degree. ABET accreditation will be sought because all the engineering programs in CU Denver College of Engineering, Design and Computing are ABET accredited.
The ABET student outcomes for the BS in CEM are:
