Graduates typically find meaningful employment with construction firms, consulting companies; contractors and subcontractors; engineering and architecture firms; residential home builders; land developers; private and public utilities; transportation departments; construction materials testing companies; and building products, materials and equipment suppliers.  Tremendous variation exists in the specific job titles of our graduates, but typically they find employment as a project manager, project supervisor, project or field engineer*, contract administrator, safety supervisor, project estimator, project scheduler, contractor, or construction/product representative.

* The curriculum does not prepare students for registration as a professional engineer in Indiana.
