The Construction Management program is designed to prepare men and women to work at entry- and middle-level management for general contractors, construction managers and design-build contractors in all industry sectors.  The program focuses on management practices found throughout construction that include (but are not limited to) industry terminology, building materials and systems, construction surveying, construction safety, interpretation of construction drawings, management techniques, administration, and project estimating.

Through cooperation with and guidance from the construction industry, the program remains current with industry technology, standards and guidelines.  Graduates of this program will have gained knowledge in both the technical and business management areas of the construction industry.  This degree will position graduates to obtain potential employment in construction or continue their education through several articulation agreements with other colleges and universities.
