The mission of the Department of Sustainable Construction Management and Engineering is to provide education in construction management and renewable materials and to promote the use of sustainable construction practices and renewable materials through teaching, research and outreach.
The Department of Sustainable Construction Management and Engineering offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Construction Management, which prepares students for a wide variety of professional careers in the construction industry and graduate degrees in Sustainable Construction Management and Wood Science. Graduate programs leading to M.S., M.P.S. or Ph.D. degrees are offered in three options: Construction Management, Sustainable Construction, and Wood Science.
A concentration in Wood Products Engineering provides optional coursework in the manufacturing, properties and marketing of wood products.
Many students who enter the construction management program are transfer students. Graduates of A.S. programs in liberal arts, math/science, and engineering/science as well as A.A.S. programs in architectural, civil, construction, mechanical, and wood technologies are encouraged to apply.
Students with or without two-year degrees who meet all lower-division requirements and have 62 credits in acceptable course work transfer as juniors for a four-semester program. Students who have completed pre-calculus, but have not completed chemistry and/or physics or have not met most of their general education requirements generally finish in five or six semesters.
The graduate program has three options: Sustainable Construction, Construction Management and Wood Science
We offer three minors: Construction Management, Sustainable Construction and Microscopy.
