Our graduates enter the construction industry in various positions with the ability to lead, problem solve and use innovative applications on their projects. Industry feedback has consistently indicated that our graduates are well prepared to face today's construction industry challenges. While many of our graduates follow a traditional path of advancement rising to the top leadership of construction companies across the state, the country, and the world, many others build on firm foundations of their degree to develop diverse careers.
Specialized course work in building systems, materials and methods of construction, scheduling, cost estimating, structures, construction management, law, and business/labor relations are taught. This interdisciplinary approach provides the student with the best possible exposure to the various tools needed to become a construction industry leader.
Construction management graduates quickly become valued members of a construction team and participate in planning, cost estimating, scheduling, supervision, and commissioning of complete facilities in a timely, safe and quality manner. They also possess the professional knowledge to confidently interact with professional engineers, registered architects, and owners to solve problems that may arise.
