This comprehensive Master's degree program provides students with advanced skills and technical knowledge in construction management. Individuals pursuing the degree also develop the leadership skills needed to manage and direct complex construction projects. This innovative program aims to develop the broad competencies needed by today's well-rounded construction managers by offering variety of courses in construction management, business operations, and problem solving.
Most of the students in the MTM-CM program hold a bachelor's degree in Construction Management/Engineering, Industrial Technology, Engineering Technology, and Applied Sciences. However, the program has welcomed students, from many different areas, that have the desire to study and work in the Construction Management field. The MTM program includes men and women from different parts of the world, part-time and full-time students, residents and commuters. Generous assistantship stipend and tuition scholarships are available for quality students on competitive basis.
To earn a Master in Technology Management in Construction Management (MTM-CM), students must complete a minimum of 39 semester hours of study and must maintain at least a 3.0 grade point average. The course work is composed of four phases: (1) the program core, (2) the advanced Construction Management concentration, (3) the business operations, and (4) the synthesis phase. The student in consultation with his/her graduate advisor selects the specific courses that meet the requirements.
Check the program's flowchart.
1. Technology Core (9 semester hours)
The technology core consists of course work in research and development, engineering economics and strategic management, and Project Management.
2. Technology Concentration (15 semester hours)
CONS 6410: Contracts and Disputes Resolution
CONS 6430: Advanced Estimating, Bidding Strategy, and Cost Control
CONS 6450: Negotiation in the Engineering Environment
TECH 6840: Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED)
CONS 5400: Lean Construction
CONS 5470: Trenchless Technology Construction
3. Business Operations (9 semester hours)
The business operations component consists of course work in Statistical Data Analysis and Decision Making, Quality Culture Assessment, Renewable Technologies, and other graduate MBA courses selected through advisement by major advisor and the Director of Graduate Studies in Business.
4. Synthesis Experience (6 semester hours)
The synthesis experience is determined based upon a student's choice of Plan I (thesis) or Plan II (major project). The faculty members strongly encourage the students select problems derived from the work place for a thesis or major project. The nature of the synthesis experience under each plan may differ significantly. The thesis develops the candidate's capability for applied technical research. In the major project, the student synthesizes and applies knowledge derived from the program to solve complex human-machine problems, or to analyze and develop prototype mechanisms or systems.
You may enter the program at the beginning of any semester and must have a Bachelor's degree with a major in construction, architecture, engineering, industrial technology or a related academic field. Candidates must meet the Graduate College admission requirements and present an undergraduate grade point average (GPA) of no less than 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. Foreign students must establish English proficiency by taking the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or equivalent English test. Competitive stipends are available for graduate research and teaching assistantships. Applications for assistantships must be completed and submitted to the Construction Management Department in the College of Technology.
