About The School
The School of Engineering, Computing and Construction Management (SECCM) is a nationally-recognized leader in undergraduate education in the disciplines of Engineering, Computer Science, and Construction Management.
The Engineering major is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET and the Bachelor of Science in Computer Science is accredited by the Computer Science Accreditation Commission of ABET, (http://www.abet.org). The American Council for Construction Education (ACCE) accredits the Construction Management major.
Our curricula provide strong technical grounding within the selected discipline along with excellent written and oral communications skills. All of our programs incorporate the University's general education requirement, which assures students of an extensive and effective background in the transdisciplinary study of the social sciences and humanities. All our programs provide the option to attain additional specialization in technical or managerial subject areas. SECCM graduates are in high demand because they meet the need for professionals able to adapt to societal change.
All Engineering majors take the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) examination. Construction Management majors are encouraged to take the Associate Constructor examination. SECCM supports these examinations by providing financial and administrative assistance for our students.
The University's Center for Career & Professional Development coordinates intern opportunities for all three undergraduate programs. Students are encouraged to belong to the Engineering Student Club and the Construction Management Student Club. These clubs maintain an affiliation with several professional societies to include: the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE); the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME); the Institute for Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE); the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA); the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC); the Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA). The top 20% of the CM class are inducted into Sigma Lambda Chi, the Construction Management honor society. SECCM women also lead the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) and National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) student organizations
