Cooperative program leading to the Associate of Arts or Science Degree and the Bachelor of Science Degree in Construction Management at Sam Houston State University.
The Construction Management option prepares graduates for exciting careers in the construction industry. The academic concentration is interdisciplinary, with course requirements in engineering, business, management, and technology. The focus is on teaching integrated management techniques with innovative construction practices. Competencies the student will possess when completing the degree option include using time management to delegate and make timely decisions, communicating concisely in oral and written formats, and becoming an innovative and critical thinker. As a graduate with a Construction Management degree from the Department of Engineering Technology, you will find career opportunities in entry-level management positions, such as supervision, estimation, planning, coordination, scheduling, quality control, quality assurance, and project administration.
The Department of Engineering Technology was established as a brand new department which separated from the Department Agricultural Sciences and Engineering Technology at Sam Houston State University in September 2017. This department was originally established as a joint department in 1909. The Department of Engineering Technology also offers a B.S. in Engineering Technology, a B.S. in Construction Management, and a B.S. in Design and Development. Additionally, minors and concentrations are available in both Electronics and Industrial Safety Management. The Department serves as the academic advisement center for students interested in the Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences degree.
There are currently 500+ students enrolled in Engineering Technology at SHSU. Enrollment in the program has grown by over 50% during the past 5 years when the department was restructured from Industrial Technology to Engineering Technology. The B.S. in ECET degree program is one of the fastest growing majors in both the department and the College of Science and Engineering Technology (CoSET) at SHSU. There are literally hundreds of possible career opportunities for those graduating with a degree from the Engineering Technology program at SHSU.

Sam Houston State University supports the State of Texas Fields of Study.
The Core Curriculum at Sam Houston State University (to be used by all incoming students as of fall 2014) contains 42 semester credit hours, encompassing nine component areas. Each component area has a minimum credit hour requirement and a selection of specific courses that may be used to satisfy the requirement. The Core Curriculum details Sam Houston State University courses and their Texas Common Course Number (TCCN) equivalents for college transfer students which comprise SHSU’s core curriculum.
Many SHSU disciplines including the sciences, business, and education require specific courses from the SHSU core as degree specific graduation requirements. To minimize cost and time to complete degree requirements always select SHSU/transfer core courses specified as degree requirements in your intended major. If you have not decided on a major, select core courses supporting your intended area of academic concentration.
Prior to enrolling in core classes, students are encouraged to review specific degree requirements for their major. Selection of major-specified core courses reduces the total number of hours required for graduation.
If you do not see a Texas Common Course Number (TCCN) mapping a specific core course to your transfer institution, please go to Transfer Course Equivalency Guide and select your institution from the drop-down menu. The result will list all currently mapped transfer courses from your institution to SHSU courses.
