The Engineering Technology and Construction Management programs at UNC Charlotte provides multiple paths to earning the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology (B.S.E.T.) or the Bachelor of Science in Construction Management (B.S.C.M.) degree. Students may enroll at UNC Charlotte as freshmen, transfer into the upper division of our 2+2 program after completing their first two years of engineering technology study (earning an AAS degree) at a community college, or transfer with less than two years of college credit as a general transfer student. The Department of Engineering Technology at UNC Charlotte has offered baccalaureate degree programs in several disciplines since 1970. Prior to 1991, the department conferred the Bachelor of Engineering Technology degree. The BET degrees in Civil, Electrical and Mechanical received initial accreditation from ABET in 1974. In 1991, the department began conferring the Bachelor of Science in Engineering Technology degree in those disciplines and has since added additional major of study in fire safety and the Bachelor of Science in Construction Management degree.
