Choosing a Great Construction Engineering Technology School for Your Associate Degree

Best Construction Engineering Technology Associate Degree Schools Your choice of construction engineering technology for getting your associate degree school matters. Important measures of a quality construction engineering tech program can vary widely even among the top schools. Below we explain some of the most important factors to consider before making your choice:

Overall Quality Is a Must

A school that excels in educating for a particular major and degree level must be a great school overall as well. To take this into account we include a college's overall Best Colleges ranking which itself looks at a combination of various factors like degree completion, educational resources, student body caliber and post-graduation earnings for the school as a whole.

Over 80% of the schools in this list are in the top 45% of our overall quality ranking.

Average Early-Career Salaries

To determine the overall quality of a graduate school, one factor we look at is the average early-career salary of those receiving their associate degree from the school. After all, your associate degree won't mean much if it doesn't help you find a job that will help you earn a living.

Other Factors We Consider

The metrics below are just some of the other metrics that we use to determine our rankings.

  • Major Focus - How much a school focuses on construction engineering technology students vs. other majors.
  • Major Demand - How many other construction engineering technology students want to attend this school to pursue a associate degree.
  • Educational Resources - How many resources are allocated to students. These resources may include educational expenditures per student, number of students per instructor, and graduation rate among other things.
  • Student Debt - How much debt construction engineering technology students go into to obtain their associate degree and how well they are able to pay back that debt.
  • Accreditation - Whether a school is regionally accredited and/or accredited by a recognized construction engineering technology related body.

Our full ranking methodology documents in more detail how we consider these factors to identify the best colleges for construction engineering technology students working on their associate degree.
