Population and business growth in the U.S. and abroad result in the need to construct new residential units, office buildings, hospitals, schools and supporting infrastructure. Existing infrastructure is continually in need of repair and replacement, while trends in increasing energy efficiency leads to the need to retrofit and upgrade existing buildings. Construction managers coordinate and supervise the construction of such projects and are increasingly being called upon to assist in design and operation phases of these projects as well. These professionals work closely with owners, architects, engineers, building officials and trade workers and thus must have strong communication skills and a broad understanding of many disciplines.
Our construction management curriculum is founded on a general education in liberal studies, communications, mathematics and the physical sciences. Graduates will have applied basic principles in construction science topics including materials and methods, analysis and design of systems, design theory, graphics and geomatics. They will have also gained an understanding of fundamental business topics including accounting, economics, business law and principles of management.
These foundations lead to higher-level courses in which such knowledge is applied to construction topics in the areas of estimating, scheduling, accounting, finance, law, safety, ethics, and project management. Throughout their academic career, students will apply the knowledge and skills that they learn in the classroom to an integrated construction project in a laboratory environment.
It is the goal of the Construction Management Department to prepare graduates to enter and succeed as professionals in the construction industry.
