Construction Engineering Technology, BSET with grad track option leading to Engineering Technology, MS


Return to Degree programs listed by academic unit Return to: Degree programs listed by academic unit

The Department of Engineering Technology offers a grad track option for currently enrolled UNT undergraduate students majoring in construction engineering technology (CNET).

In this grad track option, the student can take a maximum of nine (9) credit hours of graduate courses while completing the BS degree. After earning the BS degree, these credit hours can be counted toward the MS degree. Prior to registering for these courses, the student must be admitted to the grad track option and obtain approvals from the undergraduate and graduate coordinators.

Admission requirements and program policies


Admission requirements


Students applying to the grad track option should be majors in the construction engineering technology BSET program. Students are eligible to apply to the grad track option during their junior year. Approval will be considered after the student has completed at least 75 credit hours (a benchmark of eligibility is whether or not the student is ready to take CNET 4780 - Senior Design I  in the following fall semester). Other requirements include:

  • A cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher is required at the time of application. 
  • Two letters of recommendation from construction engineering technology faculty members

The student’s application will be reviewed by both the CNET undergraduate and graduate advisors. Once approved, the student must apply to the Toulouse Graduate School within the first semester of their senior year.

Program policies


After completing at least 90 credit hours, the student is eligible to take specified graduate courses for credit toward the BSET and the MS with a major in engineering technology. Students should earn a B or higher in these courses to be counted toward the MS.

Students admitted to the grad track option will be conditionally admitted to the MS program. Students who satisfy all requirements of the BSET and who maintain a 3.0 or higher GPA will be fully admitted to the MS program.

Undergraduate students who have been accepted to the grad track option should complete all BSET degree requirements and graduate within 12 months of the first day of the semester for which they began taking graduate courses or enrollment in graduate-level course work will be suspended.

Students must enroll in graduate school in the long semester after finishing his or her BSET and should take the remaining graduate courses in the following year(s) to compete the MS. If the student does not enroll in graduate school in the long semester after finishing the BSET degree, those graduate course credit hours will not be counted for the MS degree even if the student comes back for graduate school in the future.

Program requirements


Students in the grad track option must register for three graduate courses:

  • MGMT 5240 - Project Management
  • MSET 5800 - Studies in Engineering Technology

Plus one elective course selected from the following with the approval of the advisor:

  • MSET 5200 - Advanced Construction Scheduling
  • MSET 5220 - Building Information Modeling
  • MSET 5230 - Risk Management in Construction
  • MSET 5900 - Special Problems

The three graduate courses will replace CNET 4180 , CNET 4620 , and one technical elective.

See the BSET in Construction Engineering Technology  for the remainder of the requirements for the bachelor’s degree.
