BS IN CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT

Introduction

Construction is a basic industry that builds factories, airports, roads, hospitals, offices, schools, and homes. However, there is no focus for the construction industry. Rather construction is highly fragmented according to type of construction (bridges, industrial, commercial) or by specialty trades (mechanical, electrical, plumbing).

The program is designed to acquaint students with the fundamental concerns and the requirements of managing a construction project, to provide students with tools, which can assist in managing projects, and to expose students to some of the current trends and problems in construction.

The Construction Management program is designed to prepare professionals for positions in the construction industry. Emphasis is placed on methods of construction, construction procedures, law, estimating, scheduling, and management procedures.

Learners are required to complete a total of 124 credit hours for completion of the BSCM program. Learners must satisfy the General Education requirements by completing 42 credit hour of college-level course work that includes social science courses to help them develop the critical thinking skills necessary to fill responsible leadership positions. The remaining 82 credit hours are earned from the core, elective, concentrations and university orientation course. A full-time student will take an average of one and a half month to complete 3 credits.
