University Launches B.S. in Construction Management Program

Philadelphia University will offer the B.S. in Construction Management for new, incoming students beginning fall 2011. Current students interested in the program can begin taking core courses in January 2011.

Construction managers play an integral role in the development, construction and maintenance of commercial, residential, institutional and industrial buildings, as well as civil and transportation infrastructure.

Degree programs in construction management have become the preferred higher-education option for students interested in leadership positions within this multi-faceted and competitive field.

“The new B.S. in Construction Management will provide an industry-centered learning experience led by faculty who remain active in the fields they teach,” said Greg Lucado., associate professor in the B.S. in Construction Management Program. “Students will gain skills needed to be leaders in the dynamic construction-management fields.”

Courses in construction, architecture, engineering, business and liberal arts prepare students to be ethical, innovative problem solvers who understand the full construction-business model.

In addition to time spent in class, students are encouraged to pursue a variety of internship opportunities made possible by our close association with industry professionals.
