Advising

The Construction Management program has been updated, starting for students who enroll in fall of 2012. If you are a currently-enrolled student, this will not change the courses that you need to graduate, however some courses may no longer be offered.  Contact your Megan Duskey for additional information.

Construct for Practice (C4P)

Since 2012, our curriculum has integrated practical labs with what you learn in the classroom. Team up with other students to create, design, and manage all facets of a building project.
