Construction Engineering and Management Major
THE MARQUETTE Construction Engineering Major
CONVERGE. Our program turns students into professional engineers with the necessary skills in business and law to become leaders in the construction engineering and management field — an example of the growing trend to cross traditional disciplinary boundaries and create new areas of specialization.
As a construction engineering major, you'll study in the state-of-the-art engineering hall, which features:
- The Discovery Learning Laboratory — open around the clock to allow you to build and tear down to your heart's content
- Engineering Materials and Structures Testing Laboratory — the Midwest's most unique educational and research lab for large-scale component and subassembly
- Mechanical, plumbing and electrical systems on display so you can see engineering at work
COURSE OF ACTION. Students in the construction engineering major learn to use mathematics, science and engineering to analyze problems and design a construction process. The building boom on Marquette’s campus gives students the chance to visit job sites, the perfect opportunity to crystalize the theories taught in the classroom.
CO-OP. It's required. Construction engineering and management places emphasis on practical experience and manager-level training. The engineering co-op program gives you an edge over other engineering students, and co-op experiences pay handsomely, too.
COMMUNICATE. You cannot become an effective leader without strong communication skills. Our construction engineering major stresses leadership and communication skills and the importance of professionalism and ethics, essential elements of well educated engineers.
