Construction Management, BS
Begining in fall 2018, admission to the Bachelor of Science in Construction Management will be suspended. Students currently enrolled in the program will be able to complete their course of study.
Coursework in construction management and engineering, including the Undergraduate Minor in Construction Management, will continue to be available for students in any major who are interested in construction. Students are encouraged to contact a Construction Management Program Advisor to plan a course of study.
Construction managers plan, direct, coordinate, and budget a wide variety of construction projects from inception to completion, all the while managing time constraints, cost and quality. This program will prepare you for a challenging career in the construction industry as a future leader in a dynamic and ever-changing environment.
We cover a broad range of basic and advanced subjects in engineering and construction management, such as planning, cost estimation, scheduling, project management, and construction administration. We will also expose you to the latest applications in construction research and technology. You will have exciting site visits to construction projects led by experienced mentors. We teach you the fundamentals of engineering and construction science, as well as business aspects of construction. Faculty-directed site visits to actual construction projects inform your studies during modern and practical systems integration courses, providing you with valuable field experience under the guidance of knowledgeable mentors.
Finally, case-method teaching uses real-world business examples to demonstrate how general principles apply to specific problems in construction management. The approach is especially useful when examining construction contracts and administration, as well as safety and business law.
