Purdue's construction engineering program balances theory and practice. Our strong curriculum gives students a solid grounding in the theory behind traditional and emerging areas in construction engineering as well as management principles and applications. The CEM program provides a strong hands-on component through internships and the opportunity to complete project builds around the community with our student organizations. Students can also apply what they have learned through one-on-one research with a faculty member in their chosen area of interest.
CEM students graduate with a degree in Construction Engineering (BSCNE), a rich understanding of engineering theories and management principles, an ability to apply these to real-world construction projects, and industry experience that gets them multiple job offers before graduation.
