Welcome to the Department of Construction Management & Civil Engineering Technology
The Department of Construction Management and Civil Engineering (CMCE) Technology has provided trained engineering and construction management technicians for New York City's construction and public works industries since 1947. Students are offered multiple program options, which share a closely aligned base of major courses, along with a strong foundation of general education coursework. The CMCE department currently offers the following programs:
- Construction Engineering Technology (BTech)
- Civil Engineering Technology Associate of Applied Science (AAS)
- Construction Management Associate of Applied Science (AAS)
- Construction Management Certificate
The mission of the Department of Construction Management and Civil Engineering Technology at New York City College of Technology is to educate our students for careers in the fields of Construction Management and Civil Engineering Technology. Through excellence in teaching and community service, the department promotes opportunities for scholarly, personal, and professional growth. We value and will continue our long tradition of educating non-traditional students of diverse backgrounds for successful entry into the workforce. The department is committed to maintaining a diverse faculty of Professional Engineers, Architects, and Construction Managers thus enabling our graduates to be well prepared to support the diverse needs of the City of New York.
In the Civil Engineering Technology associate degree program, our focus is on the fundamental concepts and technical skills required to create a wide range of career paths in the civil engineering profession. We balance practical knowledge with theory and encourage a lifetime of learning and leadership. Students are made aware of their ethical, social, and legal responsibilities as practicing professionals in this people serving profession.
In the Construction Management associate degree program, we prepare students for success within the professional practice of construction management. This preparation includes an understanding of the design, engineering, business, and technical principles and practices used in the construction industry. As future leaders in the construction industry, students are made aware of their ethical, social, and legal responsibilities as practicing professionals.
In the Construction Engineering Technology bachelor degree program, students are trained to enter a professional field which requires designing, planning, construction, and management of infrastructure. Construction engineers are a hybrid between civil engineers and construction managers. Coursework focuses on the design as well as the construction management of highways, bridges, airports, railroads, buildings, dams and utilities. This allows our graduates to understand both the design processes as well as the building requirements needed to design and build today's infrastructure, particularly in New York City.
