Master of Science in Construction Management

The construction industry today challenges the world economy with a huge volume of infrastructure-related mega projects annually. These projects become more and more complex as advancing technology demands. The future construction project will typically not only involve implementing a complex design, but also leading a diverse and technically competent labor pool, coordinating teams of Architecture and Engineering experts and reacting to changing geopolitical influences.

As a professional, the Construction Manager has evolved as the leader responsible for coordinating the resources necessary for successful completion of a high quality project, on-time and within budget expectations. The Construction Manager must master the skills of leadership, project controls, and digital-proficiency beyond estimating and scheduling software. The industry also demands inquiry into this age-old profession so that mega projects, infrastructure renewal, and urban resiliency can be planned and delivered with confidence.

The program is designed to focus on the complex mega projects and allows students to select courses from the Schools of Systems and Enterprises, Technology Management and Arts and Letters. An undergraduate degree in Architecture, Construction Management, Engineering or related disciplines from a recognized school is a prerequisite for graduate study in construction management. Applicants not meeting this prerequisite will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and may be required to enroll in CM 510 (Construction Management Fundamentals) course if accepted.

Stevens offers a Master of Science degree and several Graduate Certificates in Construction Management. The successful degree graduate will complete three core courses for 9 credits and an additional 21 credits from graduate-level courses within Construction Management or pre-approved courses offered institute-wide.
