Construction Management Program
Construction management is a dynamic profession – a combination of technology, art and science. While an understanding of the technical aspects of construction is extremely important, it is also essential that construction professionals have a comprehensive knowledge of the business and management aspects of the profession.
And though construction has traditionally been a very conservative industry, the increasing rate of technological development and competition in the industry have served to accelerate the development of new construction methods, equipment, materials, and management techniques. As a result of these forces, there is an increasing need for innovative and professionally competent construction professionals. Students enrolled in the Construction Management program receive broad academic, technical, business, and construction management courses that are designed to produce well-rounded construction professionals.
