Construction Mangement is part of the School of Polytechnic  .  Construction Management (CM) prepares students for the application of engineering principles and technological developments in construction methods, business operations and management skills to oversee a construction project. CPET majors manage and supervise the conversion of engineering and architectural plans from ideas to reality.


CM B.S. Program Objectives

  • To provide education of the traditional and returning adult student for career success in the construction industry, with a special emphasis on sustainable construction.
  • To develop a respect for diversity and a knowledge of contemporary professional, societal, and global issues with an understanding of professional and ethical responsibilities.
  • To be responsive to the ever-changing technologies of the construction industries.
  • To instill in students the desire for and ability to engage in lifelong learning.

The breadth of the curriculum will provide leadership potential in addressing problems of the region, its people, and its industries.  Graduates of this program take jobs with contractors, building-materials companies, utilities, architectural firms, engineering firms, and government agencies. The construction management program does not lead to licensure as a professional engineer or registered architect.
