Construction management blends construction knowledge with business principles for the planning and execution of projects designed by architects and engineers. Construction managers coordinate a diverse workforce in order to ensure that projects advance on time and within budget.
Our curriculum is built to develop the construction manager of the future, a professional who is not only technically competent, but who also focuses on innovation, has an entrepreneurial spirit, enjoys global and social awareness, and is a leader in the community. A hallmark of our program is its proven quality as demonstrated by the many alumni that occupy top executive positions in the construction industry around the country.
Emphasis on Management
Under YOUR Leadership
As the construction manager, your leadership will define project objectives, communication protocols, resource allocation and costs, schedule coordination, and performance requirements.
Building YOUR Future
Construction Managers oversee the construction process from start to finish. Typical roles include negotiating budgets, determining proper construction methods and strategies, presenting project updates, collaborating with architects, engineers, and other building specialists, hiring and supervising construction teams, and ensuring job site safety.
Strengthen YOUR Network
Outside the classroom our students are active in a multitude of professional organizations including chapters of National Association of Home Builders, Mechanical Electrical Specialty Contractors, Associated General Contractors and Sigma Lambda Chi.
