Construction Management

When students enter the School of Construction Management, they are empowered by ideas and motivation. We take those interests and forge them in a crucible of exciting and relevant coursework, hands-on instruction, an engaged and professional faculty, and relationships with industry leaders. The result is a graduate armed with best practices learned through countless hours in the laboratory, and the confidence to step into the workforce and into a rewarding career. 

The program prepares students to manage, coordinate, and supervise the construction process from beginning to end. As a professional degree program, it is more project management oriented than engineering oriented.

The Construction Management program’s mission is to provide the construction industry and related fields with highly trained and motivated graduates who are prepared for a professional career through specialized managerial, financial, and technical course work.
