Construction Management


The Construction Management (CM) Program leads to a Bachelor of Science Degree. It is a comprehensive five year cooperative education program aimed at developing managers who have strong understanding of technical and management principles and their application to today's complex construction projects. The curriculum is based on a DESIGN-CONSTRUCT-MAINTAIN continuum. The program is accredited by the American Council on Construction Education (ACCE).

Upon completion of the degree program, students will acquire skills in communication, problem solving, planning, control and resource management. Other support knowledge acquired in the program includes constructability, contracts, finance, safety and the design of construction operations. An important component of the construction management degree is the co-op work experience, which places the student in rewarding, paying employment for six or seven quarters between the freshman and senior years.
