College to Introduce Master’s Program in Construction Management in Spring 2017

The School of Engineering adds to its substantial catalog of postgraduate courses.

construction siteThe Department of Education of New York State has approved the establishment of an accredited Master of Science degree program in construction management at Manhattan College, beginning in the spring of 2017. The program will focus on management rather than design, and will prepare graduates to participate in the management of engineering work for all types of construction projects.

The graduate degree in construction management is one of the four master’s programs offered by the Civil and Environmental Engineering department. The Construction Management program is open to all students who are majoring in or have degrees in engineering, science or business, and have work experience in construction and construction management. The program is open to professionals of all experience levels — from recent graduates to engineers who have worked in the field for many years.

The graduate courses in structural, geotechnical and environmental engineering will provide the practical component of the new master’s program. College faculty also will create a custom curriculum to prepare students to play leading roles in the private and public engineering sectors. Special concentration on green engineering and sustainability will be a major component of the educational outcomes of the program.

The program will include classroom activity, hands-on learning in the labs, and on-site visits to some of the area’s latest and greatest engineering marvels.
