Below is a comment from a Cal Poly Pomona student that I wanted to share:

Now to my comment…well question actually. I looked at the list you posted and wanted to know what is the difference between these schools and a Construction Engineering Technology program? I ask this because I attend Cal Poly Pomona which is accredited by the TAC of ABET, but our program looks pretty similar to those schools on the list. I would just like to know what the major differences are. Thank you in advance.”

My response is as follows:
