C-SCHOOL BLOG Ranks Top Undergraduate Construction Programs

31December2006

Below you will find a table of the ranking data that was previously only available at a Google Spreadsheet link.

Refer to original link at: inaugural-ranking-of-the-top-undergraduate-construction-schools/

In the next several months, I plan to divide the rankings below into two categories:

a. Programs with 30 graduates or more

b. Programs with less than 30 graduates

2. Geographic location according to the seven ASC Regions

a. Northeast Region

b. Southeast Region

c. Great Lakes Region

d. North Central Region

e. South Central Region

f. Rocky Mountain Region

g. Far West Region

Base data (List of Schools, BS Graduates Per School, and Recruiting Organizations Per School) were taken from a 10/29/2001 Engineering News Record (ENR) Article entitled “The Nation’s C-Schools” By David B. Rosenbaum, Debra K. Rubin with Mary B. Powers

    It is very hard to rank schools I would think considering all the variables. MSU for instance was and still is a predominate residential construction program. EMU is a Commercial/Industrial program. EMU was the first nationally accredited construction program in Michigan. So why would you even place MSU above EMU. EMU has 95% of its students working in the industry while MSU has only 5% working in the industry while attending school. To place them ahead of EMU seems rather odd to me. EMU was nationally accredited first and its graduates have far more experience in the field before graduating and on top of that I believe MSU does not have an internship requirement to graduate while EMU does.

    Are you sure about your figures for Auburn. I am in Auburn’s BSCI program and there are only thirty undergrads accepted into the program a semester. Until this years where it changed to 3o in the fall and 60 in the spring. You stated Auburn as having 77 grads when they tend to always graduate thirty to 60 depending on id the Coop students will be graduating. Also you had listed that we had 77 org recruiting, actually we average around 65. Coming from our placement coordinator, we have consistently had two job offers for each grad. Since the program has been established we have had 100% placement of all undergraduates. Just wanted to see where this would place Auburn in your rankings. Thanks


  3. Seaborn – Thanks for your posting. You should check out the following posting for additional information on the ranking system — including it’s limitations:

    Keep in mind that these rankings are based off of data from 2001.

    Auburn is a great construction school and you will be well prepared to contribute to the construction industry upon graduation.

    Thank you,
    I have really enjoyed reading all of these statistics. Will you be doing this again any time soon with the latest statistics? Regardless, very good information
    thanks

    I love this blog site and all the information it offers. I am a CM major at Southern Polytechnic State. In my college selection process, I was constantly looking for rankings on c-schools and the only thing that I was able to find of any help was the rankings you had listed. I would love to see some newer rankings that include some more variables that are involved with construction programs. Thanks for all the information!
