Construction Management (MS)

Program Description

Today’s construction professionals face a highly competitive global engineering and construction environment that requires a fundamental understanding of management, technology, and finance, as well as business and legal principles. Talented managers know how to avoid costly delays, how to maximize existing budgets, and how to control a project’s scope, among other valuable skills. Our program helps you acquire that expertise and prepares you to be a leader in the construction industry.

The program educational objectives (PEO) of the Master of Science in Construction Management are for you to learn management and leadership practices, how to apply innovative organizational, technological, planning, and financial tools to construction projects and programs, and the importance of effective communication with all construction industry players.


To gain admission to this program, you must hold a bachelor’s degree in a relevant field from an accredited undergraduate institution. You should also have a minimum undergraduate grade-point average of 3.00, although this requirement can be waived if you have sufficient professional experience in construction management. Related undergraduate backgrounds include engineering, mathematics, science, business, management, and the liberal arts. All candidates are expected to have sufficient background in college-level mathematics to allow for successful completion of the program. This requirement will be evaluated by a Construction Management Program Director. Students whose academic and professional backgrounds are deemed to be deficient may be required to complete additional undergraduate courses as a pre- or co-requisite to admission.
