The Civil and Architectural Engineering and Construction Management (CAECM) Department offers a Bachelor of Science in Architectural Engineering (AE), a Bachelor of Science in Construction Management (CM), a five-year, freshman-to-master’s degree program in civil engineering (CVE) and a Master of Science in Structural Engineering. It also offers a five-year, double-major option, which allows students to earn both the B.S. in architectural engineering and B.S. in construction management degrees. MSOE is the only university in the state of Wisconsin to offer a five-year, freshman-to-master’s degree program in civil engineering.

The AE bachelor’s degree program has concentrations in building structural, mechanical and electrical systems design. The CM bachelor’s degree program emphasizes building estimating, scheduling and project management for commercial and industrial building projects. The CVE freshman-to-master’s degree program offers specializations in structural engineering, water resources engineering, environmental engineering and construction management.

The CVE program recognizes the growing expectation within the field of civil engineering of the master’s degree being the first professional level degree for the practice of civil engineering. All BS and MS degree programs within the CAECM department are supported by extensive design studios and laboratory facilities.
