The university’s primary mission is excellence in student learning, and university faculty are primarily evaluated on their teaching excellence.

The CAECM Department is well-known for its excellence in undergraduate and master’s level education. The Department maintains a strong student-centered focus and is committed to educating future leaders in engineering design and construction. The Department currently has 14 full-time faculty members of various rank and expertise. The Department has experienced growth and currently serves over 350 undergraduate and graduate students. Degree offerings include Bachelor and Master of Science in Architectural Engineering, Bachelor and Master of Science in Civil Engineering, and Bachelor of Science in Construction Management. Several specializations are available, including structural engineering, mechanical and electrical systems engineering for buildings, environmental and water resources engineering, transportation engineering, construction management, and municipal engineering.

  • An ability and desire to advise fourth-year students in their undergraduate capstone projects and master’s students in their graduate capstone projects
  • Membership in one or more professional societies, with a desire to pursue leadership roles within those societies
  • Able and willing to collaborate with other departmental faculty and other academic units on campus, including student organizations
