Introduction 

Construction managers plan, coordinate, budget, and supervise construction projects from groundbreaking to ribbon cutting. They work for construction firms, design firms, and material equipment suppliers. Public agencies also hire construction managers to perform inspection, supervision, and contract administration duties.

Opportunities 
  • Construction management grads have a nearly 100% placement rate with starting salaries of about $60,000. Opportunities for advancement are excellent since CWU students are so well prepared to meet industry challenges.
  • The 2015 median pay for construction managers was $87,400, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. And large firms increasingly prefer candidates with both construction experience and a construction-related bachelor’s degree.
Why this program 
  • Construction management classes are taught in the Hogue Technology Building, one of the nation’s most advanced facilities for engineering and industrial technology.
  • The program is fully accredited by the American Council for Construction Education (ACCE), and is a member of the Associated Schools of Construction (ASC), Region 7.
  • An advisory committee made up of contractors, graduates, and construction consultants provides guidance on curriculum, fundraising, employment, and related matters.
