College of Engineering and Technology
The objective of the construction management (CM) program is to provide students with knowledge and skills that are valued by commercial, residential and infrastructure sectors of the construction industry. As construction managers and professionals, our graduates plan, organize and control projects of various types and sizes. Additionally, our graduates enjoy a high placement rate and maintain a reputation of adapting well to industry needs and advancing in their professional careers.
At ECU, all CM students are given a solid base knowledge of key components of the construction industry. A series of core courses are offered in a face-to-face setting, covering the major classifications of construction - commercial, residential and infrastructure.
The Commercial Construction courses are designed to prepare students to assume positions of responsibility within the commercial construction industry. The curriculum includes project-based information and commercial construction examples from industry leaders within the course content. Specific course work include planning and scheduling, estimating, codes, safety and ethics.
Residential Construction courses provide a specialization for students in the area of residential construction. Specific residential coursework highlight the areas of land development, design, residential construction methods, marketing, cost analysis, and customer service. These knowledge areas prepare graduates for entry-level positions in the residential industry.
The Residential Construction courses were developed as a "Gold Standard" curriculum program, with the support of the National Housing Endowment. Learn More.
Infrastructure Construction courses provide focused education in infrastructure construction such as highway, bridge, pipelines, and other 'heavy civil' construction projects. Specific course work includes highway materials, plans and specifications, construction techniques and processes, and schedule management using CPM and linear scheduling. Graduates learn the skills necessary to succeed in the infrastructure construction industry.
