Participation in graduate education is possible via an M.S. program in Construction Management and a Ph.D. program in Engineering Science and Systems.

Minimum Requirements: Applicants must: (1) hold an earned doctorate in civil engineering, architectural engineering, structural engineering, construction engineering, or a closely related engineering discipline (ABD applicants may be considered if all degree requirements are completed before employment begins), (2) be able to obtain engineering licensure within three years after beginning employment, (3) be able to communicate clearly in written and spoken English, and (4) have observable dedication to undergraduate education.

Preferred Requirements: Applicants should: (1) have at least three years of U.S. design or construction industry experience in either the private or public sector, (2) have at least three years of full-time undergraduate engineering teaching experience, (3) hold an undergraduate engineering degree from a program accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, (4) be a licensed Professional Engineer (PE) or Structural Engineer (SE), and (5) hold construction certification(s), such as Associate Constructor (AC), Certified Professional Constructor (CPC), or Certified Construction Manager (CCM), or be able to obtain construction certification(s) within three years after beginning employment.
