Construction Engineering and Management

The Master of Science in Construction Engineering and Management (MSCEM) degree and Construction Engineering and Management Certificate are designed to provide programs of advanced study for candidates anticipating a managerial career in the construction industry. In addition to course delivery in a hybrid distance mode, flexibility is built into the program to provide an optimum educational experience to students.

Background Requirements

The construction engineering and management coursework is geared towards the working professional, although many students also enter the program immediately after completing an appropriate undergraduate degree. The successful applicant will have a background in business, science, engineering, technology or a related field. Most applicants to the program will have academic backgrounds in the traditional disciplines of civil, electrical, mechanical, architectural, or industrial engineering. At least one semester of calculus and a course in probability and statistics are highly recommended.

Practicing engineers or students seeking to enhance their marketability for upper-level management positions in various construction related industries may be initially interested in the certificate in Construction Engineering and Management. Further studies will lead to the Master of Science (MS) degree in Construction Engineering and Management.
