Construction Engineering (Arizona State University)
The Arizona State University MSE in construction engineering is designed for students who wish to pursue a higher degree in the engineering field with a focus on construction. This program takes a multidisciplinary approach and focuses on structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, transportation engineering and management-related topics. The goal of the program is to prepare students for a future in the design and interface of construction.
Participants of this program will gain knowledge of and first-hand experience in the management, planning and design of a variety of infrastructures. However, some infrastructures professors may focus on, depending on the class's emphasis, bridges, highways, airports, pipelines, buildings, industrial plants, reservoirs and dams. By the end of the program, students should have the education necessary to obtain a professional engineer license.
ASU is one of the first universities to attempt to rewrite the construction engineer curriculum to include an emphasis on sustainable design. Today's programs aim to train students who can impact the entire lifecycle of the building process.
ASU's academic programs are spread across campuses in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area; however, unlike most multi-campus institutions, the campuses of ASU are all individually different- each has its own distinct function to fulfill in line with the university's mission.Read more About this school
