and maintenance of structures, facilities, and systems. Participate in the
conceptual development of a construction project and oversee its organization,
scheduling, and implementation.
The Construction Management Program (CMP) is an interdisciplinary program
that combines a set of strong science and engineering core courses along
with specialized courses in engineering and project management skills. CMP
prepares the graduates to execute and manage regular and mega construction
projects including preparing cost estimates, planning, scheduling and auditing
construction projects, managing costs and administering contracts, for all
levels and types of construction.
A Bachelor of Science (BS) in Construction Engineering Management is awarded
upon successful completion of 138 credit hours. There are 79 credit hours of
coursework as program level. Students take additional 30 credits of required
courses and 6 credits of electives in their respective specializations.
