Construction Engineering requires rigorous training in basic engineering principles along with the development of skills in the areas of planning and management of construction projects and the associated systems and resources. Graduates of Construction Engineering will be required to master technical elements and to demonstrate particular competence in the areas of communication, fiscal management, and project control. The broad-based background is tailored to develop professionals who will be able to move between the technical and managerial aspects of construction projects and to serve in key leadership positions within the construction industry.

Graduates can look forward to employment by construction companies; city and county construction departments; state and federal transportation organizations (such as the Georgia Department of Transportation); and civil engineering consulting and design firms. Graduates have the qualifications to enter careers in construction related fields as well, including construction engineering design, construction operations and management, construction planning and cost estimating. Typical job titles for graduates may include construction engineer, project engineer, project supervisor, construction manager, and design engineer.

The Construction Engineering curriculum offers a balance of coursework in engineering analysis, engineering design, construction practice, and construction management. 

The Bachelor of Science in Construction Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
