A comprehensive program for a progressive field
Established in 2019, the Bachelor of Science in construction management is a partnership between Nelson Rusche College of Business, Arthur Temple College of Forestry and Agriculture, College of Sciences and Mathematics, and the James I. Perkins College of Education. Their collaboration means that your degree studies will be comprehensive and complete, providing the business, technical, leadership and customer service skills you need to succeed in this progressive field.
In addition to rigorous courses that equip you to manage projects from concept to completion, you’ll complete an internship during which you’ll build experience and expand your professional network.
The Bachelor of Science in construction management will also prepare you to sit for the LEED Green Associates exam, a foundational credential for professionals.
Increasing opportunities, now and in the future
Between America’s growing population, which calls for more offices, schools, retail outlets, restaurants and other facilities, as well as the need to replace or upgrade the nation’s aging infrastructure – bridges, roads and pipelines – it’s no wonder the job outlook for construction management is so bright.
Preparation for professional practice
As you pursue your degree, you’ll learn the skills required to succeed as a professional. That includes how to establish positive working relationships, supervise others, problem solve, motivate people to meet tight timetables, and delegate tasks and responsibilities. You’ll also improve your communication skills, both written and verbal, which will help you explain complex information to architects, engineers, workers and clients.
