Construction Management, BSCM

The Construction Management major prepares professionals for careers with construction contractors, construction management firms, engineering/architectural firms, public agencies, and trade associations. The program is accredited by the American Council for Construction Education (ACCE), the major accrediting agency for four-year baccalaureate degree programs in construction, construction science, construction management, and construction technology degree programs in the U.S.

The construction management major includes coursework in the BG Perspective curriculum, natural sciences, mathematics, business, technology, design, and construction. Graduates of the construction major receive the bachelor of science in construction management degree and seek professional careers such as construction project manager, estimator, scheduler, project inspector, superintendent, or material representative.

Cooperative education is a required part of the construction management curriculum that integrates each student’s academic work with professional experience. Students are encouraged to participate in the Student Construction Management Association, which is a combination of the student chapters of the Associated General Contractors (AGC), the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), and the Ohio Contractors Association (OCA).

Specific degree requirements are outlined in the schedule below.

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the baccalaureate degree, students in construction management are expected to:

  • Apply construction management skills that include cost estimating and control, construction scheduling, construction safety, construction document reading, construction methods and materials, ethics in construction, construction technical skills, and computer applications in construction.
  • Exhibit construction business skills that include construction financing, business management, and personnel management;
  • Communicate effectively in oral presentations, writing technical reports, and critiquing the work of others.
