The graduate program in Construction Engineering and Management leads to the degrees of Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy in Civil Engineering. The M.S. degree requires 30 credits to graduate, including either a MS research report (3 credits) or a MS thesis (6 credits). The Ph.D. degree requires additional course work beyond M.S. degree as well as a dissertation.
The goal of the program is to provide students the educational environment to expand their abilities as construction professionals in contractor, construction management, engineering, design-build, and owner organizations. We believe the challenges of the new era in construction will be met by a construction professional possessing a skill set firmly based in engineering, architecture, and construction. These skills also require liberal exposure to business, ethics, and law. The program affords the student educational opportunities in building construction and heavy/industrial construction. Preparing professionals for the analytical, multicultural, and creative demands of the future requires a strongly committed partnership between academia and industry. The continuing dialogue between the University and the active local construction industry further enhances educational opportunities.
