The interdisciplinary Master of Engineering in Construction
Engineering and Management at the University of Colorado Denver prepares the next generation of construction
engineers with the requisite set of skills to be effective leaders and managers
within this ever-evolving industry.
The CU Denver Construction Engineering and Management
Program is the only cooperative, interdisciplinary CEM program in
the state backed by industry and supported by accredited schools of
architecture and business.
Construction engineering and management concerns the design,
planning and management of the construction of structures (highways, bridges,
airports, buildings, dams, reservoirs, light and high-speed rail systems and
their associated transit-oriented development). The program provides the
necessary leadership for complex construction projects and subsequent
management of such structures throughout their useful life.
Graduates of the program are prepared to engage in all
responsibilities of construction engineers, including building and site design,
planning and leading construction schedules, construction quality assurance and
control, building and site surveys, the design, location and timing of
temporary structures and on-site material testing.
In addition to engineering courses in transportation, structures, soils, sustainability and more, faculty in the Business School provide
expertise in leadership, managing for sustainability, project management,
decision analysis and quality and process improvement while faculty in the College
of Architecture and Planning add expertise in green building technology, LEED
certification, construction documents and managing quality and risks.
