Background information

Construction management engineers apply training and education in innovative technologies to the construction industry. Students in the construction degree program learn to organize, lead and manage the building process. In addition to the basics of design, project cost estimating, construction methodologies, and contract management, students are equipped with computer, technical and the people skills needed to succeed.

Careers are so broadly diversified that no single curriculum prepares the student for universal entry into all fields. Many students go on to careers as project managers, estimators, planners and schedulers for both private and government agencies. Undergraduates can select from five concentrations, each designed to develop technical, management and leadership skills.
