American Council for Construction Education renews construction science accreditation



The American Council for Construction Education recently renewed the accreditation of the Bachelor of Science in Construction Science degree program offered by the Department of Construction Science at Texas A&M University.

“ The program has maintained the stringent standards of ACCE, and has proven to the board, through a visiting team of its peers and industry practitioners, that the program is worthy of reaccreditation,” reads an ACCE press release on the accreditation results.

The construction education program at Texas A&M University was established in 1946 as a Bachelor of Science in Architectural Construction. The degree program name was changed to Bachelor of Science in Construction Science in the fall of 1992. Current enrollment in the undergraduate program is approximately 600 students.

The undergraduate curriculum is aimed at educating construction generalists who are able to enter the construction industry at the lower management levels, with potential for swift advancement to middle management positions.

The ACCE was established in 1974 to be a leading global advocate of quality construction education, and to promote, support, and accredit quality construction education programs around the world. The organization is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation as the accrediting agency for four-year baccalaureate degree programs in construction, construction science, construction management and construction technology.
