Upper-Division Classes

The curriculum in your last two years focuses on construction engineering and management topics as well as on construction sciences courses.

Bachelor of Science in Construction Management

Management Option

Prepares you for professional practice as a construction manager. Provides a well-rounded educational background in business, construction management and science, liberal arts, management, mathematics, and college physics. The program emphasizes construction science courses that are for the most part noncalculus-based.

Engineering Science Option

Prepares you for professional practice as a construction manager. The engineering science option allows you to develop engineering-level skills that suit your desire and may be beneficial in employment in heavy/civil construction, industrial construction, and infrastructure construction and with electrical and mechanical specialty contractors. Differential, integral, and multidimensional calculus and engineering science are emphasized and prepare the student for graduate engineering course work.
