SUMMARY

Going to school for Construction Engineering Technology is not only a valuable choice, but naturally an essential first step for undergrads coveting to enter a career as a project engineer, a field service technician, or a construction coordinator. Interestingly, construction engineering technology is a ​unique major ranking as the 136th most popular degree. Last academic year, there were 2,391 construction engineering technology degrees conferred. In-state tuition for construction engineering technology at private institutions is, on average, 4.4 times more pricey than their public equivalents.

With only 59 universities offering construction engineering technology you might have limited options as to the institutions which will have a degree program for you. If you are hoping to surround yourself with other construction engineering technology undergrads, consider universities in Texas which have the most students admitted to construction engineering technology annually. More generally, the top region to study construction engineering technology is in the Southwest region with University of Houston, Texas State University, and Texas A & M University-College Station best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection of the top conference to major in construction engineering technology is the Southeastern Conference with University of Florida representing the conference. From our list of the best colleges, our selection for the best university for construction engineering technology is University of Florida.

The overall 'best' school does not have to be the best school for you. There can be a bunch more perspectives to weigh when selecting ​university. Features like campus amenities, transportation services, and food might definitely impact your decision of where to go to school. At Authority, we examined the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you are interested in which construction engineering technology college boasts the top campus, the answer is Michigan State University. If you are mostly interested in which school is home to the finest campus, we have a whole list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through student reviews, professor reviews, government databases, and more so we can compare every major in the United States in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can explore our comprehensive list for the colleges with the best student life&nbspand, from that list, our pick of the college with the best student life for construction engineering technology is University of Florida. Are you curious why? Continue scrolling to learn more about Authority's top recommendations. Many of our decisions just might shock you.

If expense is a significant influence in your decisions, you might be cautious about Florida Institute of Technology. Florida Institute of Technology&nbspis the most expensive college for construction engineering technology, at least for out of state attendance. We do have an entire page for the most expensive&nbspuniversities that could put the price tag at Florida Institute of Technology&nbspinto perspective. Additionally, you may be interested to know that construction engineering technology is the 370th most expensive degree in the US, with an average associated cost of $17,600. On a broader scale, the most costly state for construction engineering technology in the country is Pennsylvania at Temple University and Thomas Jefferson University, the primary colleges in the state, of $28,992 and $40,680. Even more broadly, the most expensive region for construction engineering technology is the Mid East region which is best demonstrated with Farmingdale State College with a cost of $16,980, Temple University with a cost of $28,992, and Thomas Jefferson University with a cost of $40,680.

Our cheapest region for construction engineering technology is the Plains region which is represented by Missouri Western State University with a cost of $12,573, North Dakota State University-Main Campus with a cost of $12,413, and South Dakota State University with a cost of $11,172. More optimistically, the most affordable university for construction engineering technology is Purdue University Northwest. Our comprehensive list of the most affordable schools can be explored here.

In-state students can anticipate paying in the neighborhood of $9,000 for a degree in construction engineering technology. That cost balloons intensely to a median of $21,000 for an out-of-state public-school undergraduate. As such, you might be interested in our selection for the university representing the best value for construction engineering technology: Thomas Jefferson University. Through this link you will find our comprehensive list of the universities we see as being the best value&nbspin general. Bear in mind, this discussion is based on the assumption that you are an out-of-state student. A discussion of value changes when it comes to in-state tuition, but we do not know where you live (and are not trying to collect that kind of data).

Earnings for construction engineering technology majors differ a lot, but within two years leaving college graduates will often make around $61,200. While there can be much variation in earnings potential; top earners can enjoy pay up to $100,700. Right out of school, the minimum earning jobs within the construction engineering technology field make $37,000, which could be worse. The highest earning grads for construction engineering technology graduated from Texas A & M University-College Station&nbspand if you want to find the universities with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The prevailing diversity of construction engineering technology falls subpar, being in the 28th percentile of majors nationally. The university with the most composite diversity for construction engineering technology is San Diego State University&nbspand here you can find our general list for the universities which have the most diversity. The overall financial diversity of Construction Engineering Technology stands only within the 30th percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is actually above financial diversity, ranking in the 42nd percentile. White undergraduates make up the largest proportion at 63% of scholars majoring in construction engineering technology. Additionally, 87% of undergrads pursuing a construction engineering technology degree are men.

We have insufficient professors data for construction engineering technology to make the conclusions we normally would have made in this sentence. As we including data beyond just rankings it becomes clear that the school possessing the best professors for construction engineering technology is University of Florida. You will find an explanation of our ever evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, along with many of the finest professors in the country.

Finally, the hardest university to get into for construction engineering technology is Purdue University Northwest. While we think of this list more as a novelty, we do have an extensive page for the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, here at Authority we hope you understand that looking at university with context only derived from superlatives could cause issues. We at Authority hope you read our more nuanced pages on different topics and explore some of our helpful background pages on beneficial details to look for as you progress with your school search.
