This double-major option features an engineering degree with a design specility, which qualifies graduates to seek licensure as a Professional Engineer. It also provides graduates with the construction project management skills typically needed throughout a career in the construction industry. At the same time, students learn construction budgeting, scheduling, control and management skills.


Architectural engineering students wishing to add the BSCM degree as a second degree should do so as early in their academic career as possible. However, adding the BSCM major to the BSAE major can be done as late as the middle of the sophomore year without delaying graduation.
