Master's degree in construction management
The master's degree in construction management offers the opportunity for students with a variety of undergraduate degrees to develop the skills necessary to manage large and small construction projects, including, but not limited to, management, technology, finance, leadership, project control, building information modeling, as well as business and legal principles.
Master's degree in civil engineering (construction management and engineering)
Our master's degree in civil engineering is flexible, allowing students to concentrate in construction engineering and management, among other options. The construction concentration is practice-oriented and offers interested students the possibility of participating in advanced cutting edge research. Students typically possess an undergraduate degree in engineering. Students learn management and leadership practices, how to apply innovative organizational, technological, planning, and financial tools to construction projects and programs.
Doctoral degree in civil engineering (construction management and engineering)
The doctoral degree in civil (construction engineering) offers a personalized research-based educational experience. Recent graduates have worked on a wide range of topics including (1) responsive virtual environments using biometric sensing, (2) construction robotics (3) embedded sensor-based safety at job sites, (4) automated defect detection and classification using deep active learning for civil infrastructure and (5) effect of wind on NYC buildings during construction, (6) project delivery and the building of high-performance teams, among others. Graduates went on to academic careers, as well as to leading positions in consulting and construction.
Advanced certificate in construction management
Jointly offered by the Department of Civil and Urban Engineering and Department of Technology Management, this 5-course certificate combines elements of both disciplines to yield a robust menu of courses. Students study the latest advancements in physical technology, as well as general management and construction management practices.
Advanced certificate in executive construction management
The 5-course Advanced Certificate program in Executive Construction Management (Exec 21) enables mid-level professionals to leverage their professional experience and structured coursework to advance their careers, on a part-time basis. Students join esteemed faculty and industry professionals in studying effective leadership skills, as well as technical, legal, and managerial topics critical to construction management. The program received an Academic Achievement Award from the Construction Management Association of America (CMAA), an honor shared by students and faculty alike.
