Construction & Facilities Management

The Construction Management Program, has won over a dozen competitions in the last 8 years in projects ranging from home building to planning multi-million dollar medical centers. Construction management students participate in many local and international service projects using their unique ability to pair advanced technical skills with the ability to effectively lead large projects. In addition, nearly all students find themselves in a close-knit team working with individual professors while working through their undergraduate degrees. Students will often be hired by large construction management companies throughout the nation.

The Facility & Property Management Program, led by Professor Michael Bown, has helped to fill a large demand for qualified managers to run some of the largest business, medical, government, and university campuses in the world. The program is well established and is broadly seen as the best facility and property management program in the world. FPM students enjoy a close relationship with their professors, and have the opportunity to work on research projects and participate in industry conferences each year. All FPM students do meaningful internships around the country during their education, and many of these internships lead to job offers upon graduation. More than half of practicing facility and property managers are within 10 years of retirement, and FPM students are in high demand to fill these roles.
