The mission of the Department of Engineering Technology and Construction Management is to provide a learning-centered environment that enables students, faculty, and staff to achieve their goals and to empower students to compete on a global level for careers in government, industry, secondary education, and acceptance to graduate school.

The curricula are rich with opportunities for students to develop a sound understanding of fundamentals as well as specialized theories, practices, and ethics that enhance their learning experience. The Engineering Technology and Construction Management faculty are committed to providing high-quality education, individual guidance and assistance to students, helping them to develop the attributes of critical thinking, effective communication, lifelong learning, and individual integrity while pursuing their academic goals to assist in the economic development of the region through partnerships with industry, inventors, and entrepreneurs.

Department Vision

The Department of Engineering Technology and Construction Management will be globally renowned for its excellence in education and scholarship within all of its comprehensive programs, ultimately becoming a role model for other institutions.

All Engineering Technology and Construction Management majors must earn a “C-” or better in all courses required for the major and an overall GPA of at least 2.0.

Students are strongly encouraged to work closely with a faculty adviser and an academic adviser in their major emphasis area, both at initial registration and throughout their program experience.

Other Information

Credit Transfer

Southern Utah University has course articulation agreements with a large number of other schools of higher education in the state of Utah. Students transferring to SUU from any of these schools will be able to transfer courses taken at any of these schools provided: the courses are equivalent in content and number of credit hours to those in the curricula and a grade of C or better has been earned for the courses. In all other instances, transfer of credit will be determined by the faculty on a case-by-case basis. Transfer students should have completed Trigonometry and College Physics with the Lab by the time they arrive at SUU so they are Calculus ready. If transfer students have not completed Trigonometry and College Physics with the Lab they can expect to take longer than 2 years to graduate.
