After several years in the construction management field, you may find that you want to add even more value to your career — from figuring out how to improve financing to knowing which high-tech products best fit your construction projects to learning how to communicate with diverse client, worker, and public groups. The School of Engineering's Certificate program in Executive Construction Management (Exec 21) enables you to combine your longtime professional experience with structured coursework to elevate your career.

Even more, it allows you to earn formal certification in your field without having to commit full-time to an advanced degree program. We also welcome students who have already earned bachelor’s or master’s degrees but who wish to specialize in construction management.

Our students join esteemed faculty and industry professionals in studying effective leadership skills, as well as other topics critical to construction management. Classes are small, specialized, and widely respected throughout the industry — the program received an Academic Achievement Award from the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA), an honor shared by students and faculty alike.

Admission Requirements

You need to have earned a bachelor’s degree in a related discipline and should have a minimum of 3 to 5 years of related professional experience.
