About this Bachelor's Degree

The construction engineering technology Bachelor of Science degree program is committed to producing graduates who possess the necessary skills to enter the architecture/engineering/construction industry fully capable of performing entry-level tasks at the office and in the field.

The graduates’ critical thinking, discipline and work ethic will be such that a short period of training and work experience will allow them to move into managerial positions.

The program is available at the Hattiesburg campus as well as online. (See Eagle Learning Online for more details.)
