Our students have an opportunity to advance their project management, construction, architectural, and engineering knowledge through a fully online delivery method. The 19-month curriculum focuses on empowering working professionals with the knowledge to meet today’s daily construction industry challenges.

Planning for the Future

The era when someone can start as a construction laborer and quickly advance to the level of a professional project manager is gone. Construction owners and organizations expect their managers to arrive academically prepared to oversee construction projects, and to demonstrate certain decision-making, risk management, financial, legal, regulatory, communication, and technological skills. The CEM curriculum helps equip students to succeed in today’s rapidly changing construction environment.

In addition, the appeal of the curriculum spans multiple industry stakeholders and a wide range of age groups, including women interested in bridging the current industry gender gap and becoming part of the construction engineering workforce.

The CEM concentration is applauded by many of our graduates as one of the best decisions they have made to improve their professional career, family’s security, and personal well-being. With continuous annual increases in student enrollment and attendance at orientation, it is evident that the CEM concentration is gaining popularity.
