Study the concepts of design, building systems, components, engineering, and construction practices of Construction Management while expanding your problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Qualify for employment in several fields, including construction management, civil and building engineering, real estate, and facilities management.
Bachelor of Science Degree
The Bachelor of Construction Management technology prepares students to be proficient in the art and technology of constructing the built environment relative to design, technology, building science, and social responsibility. It is based on the premise that the construction management professional must possess a core knowledge which allows them to integrate design, engineering, and technology into the process of construction.
The program allows students to develop the necessary skills by emphasizing the theoretical and practical concepts of design, building systems, components, engineering, and construction practices, and by expanding their problem-solving and critical thinking abilities. The program is also designed to instill within the student a sense of professionalism and a desire to serve and contribute to society through solving its problems in technically, environmentally, and socially acceptable ways.
Students may enter the construction management program after earning their associate degree in Architectural/Building Engineering Technology at the New England Institute of Technology, or they may transfer from other comparable college programs. The program culminates with a Senior Thesis course when students must demonstrate their understanding of and ability to utilize and synthesize the technical and engineering concepts they developed throughout their New England Tech experience.
Graduates of the construction management program will be qualified for a wide range of exciting employment opportunities in several fields in the public and private sector, including construction management, civil and building engineering, real estate, land development, construction sales, and facilities management. Upon completion of this program, students may also choose to continue into the NEIT Master of Science in Construction Management degree program.

Program Mission, Goals and Outcomes
The Construction Management Technology (CMT) program will prepare students to be proficient in the art, engineering, and technology of constructing the built environment relative to design, technology, building science, and social responsibility. Construction Management graduates will also possess a core knowledge which will allow them to integrate design, engineering, and technology into the process of construction.
The Program Goals of the CMT programs are:
- To educate students in the fundamentals of building design and sciences through a seamless and comprehensive study combining the theoretical and practical concepts of management techniques, building systems, components, engineering, and construction.
- To expand our students’ observational skills and critical thinking abilities.
- To instill within each student an awareness of and desire to contribute to the profession and society at large through the development of a professional and personal ethic that demands technically, environmentally, and socially responsible decision making.
The CMT graduate will be able to:
- Function as an integral member of the construction team.
- Act in an ethically and morally responsible way with regard to the profession.
- Evaluate and analyze problems relative to the built environment and develop solutions that meet the economic, social, technical, engineering, and aesthetic needs of the client and society.
- Evaluate and analyze complex engineering problems relative to building design and develop an appropriate solution.
- Interpret design concepts and execute building solutions consistent with industry standards.
- Demonstrate effective oral and written communications.
- Demonstrate an understanding of sustainable and environmentally responsible construction management processes.
- Develop an understanding of the relationship between time, costs, and quality relative to the construction process.
- Recognize the need for life-long learning.
- Integrate technology, building materials and systems relative to the construction process.
