Where are CMCE Alumni Working?

CMCE Alumni include graduates from all of our programs, depending on their interests and career needs.

In the Civil Engineering Technology associate degree program, our focus is on the fundamental concepts and technical skills required to create a wide range of career paths in the civil engineering profession. We balance practical knowledge with theory and encourage a lifetime of learning and leadership. Students are made aware of their ethical, social, and legal responsibilities as practicing professionals in this people serving profession.

In the Construction Management associate degree program, we prepare students for success within the professional practice of construction management. This preparation includes an understanding of the design, engineering, business, and technical principles and practices used in the construction industry. As future leaders in the construction industry, students are made aware of their ethical, social, and legal responsibilities as practicing professionals.

In the Construction Engineering Technology bachelor degree program, students are trained to enter a professional field which requires designing, planning, construction, and management of infrastructure. Construction engineers are a hybrid between civil engineers and construction managers. Coursework focuses on the design as well as the construction management of highways, bridges, airports, railroads, buildings, dams and utilities. This allows our graduates to understand both the design processes as well as the building requirements needed to design and build today’s infrastructure, particularly in New York City.

Questions about what to do next? CMCE Alumni are working all across the construction industry. Your hands on experience, certifications, and academic credentials can put you on any number of different paths. Read below for a snapshot of alumni job responsibilities and work sectors.
