About This Program

Construction managers apply management and engineering techniques to the planning, design and construction of a project in order to control the time and cost to complete the project and the quality of the construction. The construction industry needs qualified people who possess skills and knowledge in the management, engineering, economic and environmental aspects of construction projects.

Career Fields

Due to the shortage of qualified Construction Managers, graduates usually receive multiple offers with salaries higher than other engineering disciplines. In 2007, the average entry-level salary for construction management graduates was about $65,000 per year and exceeded $100,000 after few years of experience.
