Construction Management

Construction Management is a dynamic profession, a combination of art, science, and technology. While an understanding of the technical aspects of construction is important, construction professionals must also know the business and management aspects of the field. The accelerating rate of technological development and competition in the industry has necessitated new construction methods, equipment, materials, and management techniques. As a result, there is increasing demand for capable and innovative construction professionals.

Drexel at BCC's Construction Management major provides a broad academic, technical, business, and construction management foundation designed to meet this need. Our program, offered by Drexel University's Goodwin College of Professional Studies, will prepare you for all phases of operation and management of the construction organization, including cost estimating, project scheduling, and planning.

The program can be completed in two years of full-time study. Part-time options are available.

Sample Courses
