Construction management focuses on the application of business, management, and engineering principles to the construction of buildings and large-scale infrastructure. Construction management represents an industry that brings together private businesses, public entities, and trades to create and build projects. The Construction Management program provides education in basic sciences and mathematics and technical disciplines such as graphics, surveying, construction equipment, materials, planning and estimating, scheduling, and project management. The curriculum also includes relevant computer applications, the fundamentals of business management and construction law and contracts.
Because construction careers are broadly diversified, graduates of the Construction Management program may pursue entry-level employment opportunities in several areas within the construction industry including residential, commercial, and industrial sectors, as well as infrastructure and heavy construction. Typical careers include supervising construction projects, estimating and cost control, scheduling and project management.
Upon completion of the Bachelor of Science degree program in Construction Management, graduates should have developed knowledge and problem solving skills to pursue professional careers in the construction industry and other disciplines. They should be able to demonstrate the requisite technical knowledge and skills used in the construction industry as well as ethical conduct. Construction Management graduates should be able to approach construction decisions with an informed consideration of global and societal contexts and consequences, especially those decisions that might have an economic or environmental impact on an area. As construction professionals, they can contribute to the industry and society through involvement with professional societies and service activities and act as role models for construction management students and alumni.
