Construction engineering focuses on planning, design and management for the construction of infrastructure projects such as highways, bridges, pipelines, airports, railroads, industrial plants, buildings, dams and reservoirs. The construction engineering degree prepares students intending to gain a professional engineer license, while working at the interface of design activities and field construction.
ASU’s degree program is the third in the Southwestern U.S. and one of about 20 worldwide.
As a construction engineering graduate, you will be prepared to begin as a field engineer, project engineer, or project designer working for facility owners, design firms, construction companies, specialty subcontractors, or material suppliers. As your career progresses, you should be able to take on leadership roles in the delivery of sustainable facilities in the built environment and then progress through successively higher levels of management responsibility.

Financing Your Education
Fellowships through ASU and external resources, along with research and teaching assistant positions, offer many alternatives to fund your education expenses at ASU—often for multiple years or even the full course of study. Fellowship resources are limited, and many fellowships require U.S. citizenship or the right to work in the United States.
Fellowships are awarded on a highly competitive basis as part of the graduate program application process.
ASU has many financial aid options. Almost everyone, regardless of income, can qualify for some form of financial aid. In fact, more than 70 percent of all ASU students receive some form of financial assistance every year.
