Undergraduate Certificates

Overview

The undergraduate certificates in Construction Management are designed to fill the training needs of industry leaders. 

Developed at the request of two contractors' associations — the General Building Contractors Association and the Contractors Association of Eastern Pennsylvania — the certificates are suitable for those who have undergraduate degrees in other fields but wish to work in the construction industry along with those who are already employed in the industry but seek career advancement or updated training.

The 18-credit Construction Management certificates include the major-specific classes that can be applied to the B.S. in Construction Management or simply be used toward the standalone certificates.
