Construction Management

College of Built Environments

Construction management is a diverse discipline focused on the coordination, planning, and delivery of projects that compose the world’s built environment. The major classifications of construction differ markedly from one another: residential, commercial, industrial, and infrastructure, as well as specialties such as electrical, mechanical, framing, excavation, and roofing. Construction management’s technical and business aspects make it an interesting and gratifying field of study.
