The bachelor’s degree program in civil engineering has been accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

Civil Engineering Bachelor of Science graduates are expected to attain the following program educational objectives (PEOs):

1) meet the expectations of their employers,
2) will endeavor to become licensed professional engineers and,
3) are able to pursue graduate studies, if so desired.

Students who obtain the four-year Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Construction Science and Management (CSM) have a wide range of professional construction industry career opportunities in the office and the field. The construction industry provides an environment where CSM graduates thrive and achieve success through communication, collaboration and leadership.

CSM graduates
Coordinate and supervise a wide variety of projects, safely completing them on time, within budget, and meeting industry standards.
Adapt to the dynamics and challenges of the construction industry, and enjoy a great deal of autonomy in the work place while they work closely with other disciplines such as architects and civil engineers
Are in great demand for internships and jobs upon graduation.

Industry Partnership, Scholarships and More
The Department of Construction Science maintains a close partnership with the construction industry through its Construction Industry Advisory Council (CIAC). In addition to providing a significant number of scholarships, sponsoring service projects, mentorships, speaking in classes, and offering part-time and full-time employment, the CIAC also sponsors a variety of social events: mixers, tailgating, cook-offs, sports, competitions, and field trips, among others. CSM student organizations are very active and have significant industry support. The UTSA four-year B.S. in CSM degree is accredited by the American Council for Construction Education (ACCE).
