Program Description:

The Master of Science degree in Construction Management is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills to plan and manage each phase of the construction process as applied to complex commercial, infrastructure and residential building projects. The mission of the program is to offer a comprehensive construction and management education consistent with the mission of the University and the College of Architecture and the Built Environment to improve the quality and sustainability of the construction industry and thus the built environment.

The program is a first professional degree with a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to education with an unparalleled focus on sustainability. The need for construction managers is projected to increase dramatically, and students who pursue a M.S. in Construction Management learn collaborative, innovative problem-solving techniques from experienced industry professionals. Graduates possess a balance of various skills that translate from the job site to the office, giving them an exceptional advantage to secure leadership roles in the growing, competitive field of construction management.

Benefits of the program include enhanced professionalism with a global perspective, expertise and training in the principles of sustainability and Leadership in Energy Ecological Design (LEED) standards. A key component to the program is the integration of techniques, materials and methods of sustainable building into the construction process. A sustainability-focused education is not only responsible, but sought-after by employers. Our faculty and our curriculum are sensitive to the ethical dimension of the business, and we understand that, by necessity, the guidelines of sustainable practice are always changing. The program is further enriched by its membership in Sigma Lambda Chi, an international construction honor society – connecting students to a network of 19,000 members.

Our graduates are prepared to take on the exciting challenges of the built environment and shape the future of social, economic and environmental sustainability.
