Construction Management (Arizona State University)
The MS program in construction management offered by Arizona State University is a two-year, 30-credit hour, program that prepares students for a career in construction or a related field such as business, architecture or engineering. The overreaching goal of the program is to improve participants' professional capabilities in construction and to equip them with the skills they need to excel in the construction industry.
Courses in construction management focus more on just the construction of buildings. They also equip students with the knowledge necessary to maintain, operate, renovate or decommission existing infrastructures. Many projects and lectures strive to improve participants' knowledge and competency in areas such as company, program and project management.
The program has several class requirements, a few electives and experience requirements. Some of the required courses in ASU's construction management program include facilities project management, construction productivity, facilities operations and maintenance, construction company financial control and information technology in construction.
ASU's academic programs are spread across campuses in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area; however, unlike most multi-campus institutions, the campuses of ASU are all individually different- each has its own distinct function to fulfill in line with the university's mission.Read more About this school
