The CMET program prepares students for successful careers in an industry that includes large general construction firms, small specialized contractors, materials suppliers, equipment manufacturers, and the design services of architects and engineers.  The wide choice of career opportunities includes estimator, field superintendent, construction scheduler, expediter, project manager, survey crew chief, materials technician, architectural draftsperson, and cost engineer.

The OLS program prepares students to perform well in their first work-related professional level positions, and to demonstrate leadership within organizations.  The area of specialization in EHS focuses on the various topics related to environmental health, safety, and wellness.  Graduates from this area are working in successful careers as safety professionals in construction, industrial, business and institutional settings.  Career opportunities include safety training manager, safety supervisor, safety coordinator, and director of safety.
