Why Construction Management?

The Graduate Certificate in Construction Management provides graduates with a strong skill set in acquiring and executing construction projects in the public and private sectors.

In the last 10-20 years, construction in both the public and private sectors has become increasingly complex, requiring dynamic and strongly skilled construction and project managers for effective project results. Along with offering a broad introduction to the principles of construction management, this graduate program also explores alternative delivery methods and controls for construction projects; safety, project risk, and quality management; team leadership; and negotiation skills and techniques. The Construction Management Graduate Certificate is intended to serve owners' representatives, consulting engineers, architects, design engineers, contractors, and subcontractors. Individuals who have a Bachelor of Science, but not necessarily in construction, and who have been identified by their companies as having high potential for advancement are also good candidates for the program.
