Department of Construction Management

Who Are We?

We provide our students with a solid platform of construction education, and practical tools enabling them to occupy leading positions in the construction industry with its three major segments:

  • Residential
  • Commercial
  • Heavy / Civil

We equip our students with the technical as well as the business tools enabling them, if they choose, to run their own businesses.

Every graduating student will be awarded a Bachelor of Science in Construction Management, together with a business minor (Management, Business, or Entrepreneurship).

Who Are Construction Managers?

  • Construction Managers are task oriented people, incorporating theoretical and hands-on experiences related to both filed and office work.
  • We manage construction projects from inception to completion; from the time the project is an idea in an Owner’s mind, to the time the project needs to be disposed of.
  • We are builders, managers, surveyors, estimators, schedulers, safety specialists, project superintendents, field engineers, and above all: fun people to interact with.
