B.S. in Construction Management What is a Construction Management degree?
Construction management is the overall planning, coordination, and control of a project from inception to completion. Construction managers work in dynamic teams to take the designer’s vision and make it a reality. With one of the highest job placement rates and starting salaries of any major, a degree in CM is a great choice for those who enjoy teamwork, solving tangible problems, critical thinking, and creating the world around them. Integrating engineering, business, and construction practices, our program offers the tools, experience, and perspective needed to make an impact in this dynamic and rewarding field.
We are committed to providing an equal opportunity program for underrepresented populations in our student body and the construction industry, including all genders, ethnic minorities, persons with disabilities, and veterans.
