Bachelor of Science in Construction Management Technology

About

The Bachelor of Science in Construction Management will prepare you to work in supervisory or management positions in the construction industry. In the program, you’ll study technology and engineering, gain an understanding of different materials and building codes, and get hands-on experience through labs, projects and a senior internship.

Curriculum & Requirements

Construction Management, Bachelor of Science (BS)

The construction option focuses on selected areas of technology, physics, construction materials and techniques, emphasizing courses such as construction estimating, soils and surveying, building codes, and architecture. This concentration prepares graduates to enter and progress in supervisory or management positions in the construction industry. Initial employment may be as an estimator, laboratory technician in materials testing, construction inspector or field engineer.

Notes: Including university requirements, the program requires a minimum of 180 credits, an average of 15 credits per quarter for a 12 quarter, four-year program. The 180 credits are based upon the following assumptions: 

  • Students have had one year of high school drafting. If this assumption is not true, then the student will have to take METC 102;
  • Students will have satisfied university competencies. If this assumption is not true, then the student will have to complete up to six more credits of classes. (See university competencies).

Grade Requirements

  • In order to graduate, students majoring in the department must earn a GPA ≥2.5 in departmental coursework.
  • Students getting a minor in the department must also earn a GPA ≥2.5 in departmental coursework.
