Construction management is an ideal major if you enjoy a creative challenge and like to see the results of your work. With new technology comes new materials, new products, and new implementation techniques. Our hands-on program prepares students to meet the ever-changing needs and regulations they will face managing construction projects, infrastructure upgrades, or running their own businesses.
We offer a +2 Construction Management baccalaureate program for graduates from the Architectural & Building Engineering Technology, Civil & Environmental Engineering Technology, and Construction Management programs. Graduates of other similar programs may request a transcript review during the application process.
A baccalaureate degree in Construction Management will meaningfully synthesize prior experiences, education, business management skills, construction techniques, resource allocation, asset management, and human resource management. Students entering from AET, CET, and CPM will arrive with a solid understanding of the foundations of engineering, management, and/or design and will leave with the ability to manage the planning and implementation of a construction project as principal or employee of a construction business. Because of demographics and economics, motivated graduates will enjoy rapid ascent of the management career ladder.
This program is designed to better meet the needs of the construction industry. Rapid technological advances in this field, combined with an aging workforce, present opportunities for recent college graduates. With additional field experience, graduates will assume positions of superintendent, project manager, estimator, or field engineer in commercial, institutional, industrial, residential, or civil construction.
As a 2+2 program, the curriculum for the third and fourth year of the bachelor's program is detailed here. To explore options for the first two years of curriculum, please view the associate degree programs in Architectural & Building Engineering Technology, Civil & Environmental Engineering Technology, or Construction Management.
