The Construction Management major is a broad-based program designed to prepare students for positions in the construction industry. Corporate and private construction companies seek graduates to fill job positions in the field and in management. Students may select from three concentrations: Land Development/Residential Building Construction Management, Electrical Construction Management, and Commercial Construction Management. The merging of a strong technical background with the ability to lead personnel and manage systems produces a graduate who is invaluable to the construction industry.

The Commercial Construction Management concentration is designed to prepare students to assume positions of responsibility within the commercial construction industry worldwide. Students who graduate are able to secure positions as project estimators, codes inspectors, assistant project engineers, assistant superintendents or superintendents, assistant or project managers, and/or ultimately owners of construction-related companies. Students will get many hands-on opportunities for learning with the project-based program and will also be able to obtain practical experience in the industry through the internship/cooperative education requirements with companies that construct a variety of commercial structures.
