The CEAS will host a construction management informational meeting for UW students.

All students interested in learning more about an exciting new degree program at the University of Wyoming should attend an upcoming informational session.

The College of Engineering and Physical Sciences (CEAS) will host a meeting to learn more about the new construction management degree, offered through the Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering. While the CEAS will administer the program, it’s not an engineering degree, and it includes business and communication courses as part of the curriculum.

The informational meeting will be at 1:10 p.m. Dec. 7 in Room 2104 of the Engineering Building.

“This degree program will produce students with the critical skills needed to become our next generation of leaders in the construction industry," program coordinator Matt Newman says. “These project management skills, however, are not isolated to construction. We will be working in parallel with many of our existing programs, better preparing Wyoming students to excel in their respective fields.”

Construction managers coordinate and supervise a variety of projects ranging from building public, residential, commercial and industrial structures. Graduates of the program will be knowledgeable in management of both the vertical construction of buildings and structures, as well as horizontal construction, which includes the fields of highway construction, civil infrastructure and mining.

Employment data for construction management positions indicate a regional growth rate of 169 percent from 2013-18 and a national growth rate of 11 percent from 2016-26, which equates to about 45,000 new jobs. The national average salary for a construction manager is $91,370.
