The mission of the B.S. in Construction Management program is to educate students on basic construction management principles and practices, as well as their application to sustainable construction projects.

At the end of the program of study, students will have a foundation of skills and knowledge in construction science, particularly in the areas of design and construction systems, construction graphics, construction surveying, methods and materials, estimating, planning, and scheduling, construction accounting and finance, project management, and safety procedures and practices.
