Construction Management is an interdisciplinary curriculum that provides a background in construction means and methods, business administration, communication skills, architectural and engineering fundamentals, applied science, and mathematics.
The Construction Management program is accredited by the American Council for Construction Education (ACCE) and was most recently re-accredited in 2015. ACCE accreditation requires that information regarding program goals and objectives, operating procedures, and performance assessment planning and data is readily accessible to the public.
