Degree Programs

The College of Engineering & Applied Science is offering a Bachelor of Science, Minor and Certificate in Construction Management

Construction Management at the University of Wyoming is new degree program offered through the Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering. Construction Management as an occupation is growing at a faster rate than any other occupation in the United States. The increasing complexity of new buildings and industrial (horizontal) construction prompts this growth along with an increase in projected retirements of current Construction Managers. The Construction Management program at the University of Wyoming seeks to prepare a future workforce capable of competing in and driving technological advancements in construction industries. 


What is Construction Management?

Construction Managers coordinate and supervise a variety of projects ranging from building public, residential, commercial and industrial structures. They also work on roads, bridges, and large industrial sites. A construction manager can work with a client from design to finish on a project. The UW Construction Management curriculum prepares students to:

  • Create construction project safety plans, cost estimates, budgets, and work timetables
  • Assess construction documents for planning and management of construction processes
  • Analyze methods, materials, and equipment used to construct projects
  • Apply electronic-based technology to manage the construction process
  • Explore basic surveying techniques for construction layout and control
  • Learn collaborative construction management skills with a multi-disciplinary team
  • Investigate methods of project delivery, accounting and cost control, construction quality assurance and control, and project control processes.
  • Interpret the legal implications of contract, common, and regulatory law to manage a construction project.
  • Explore the basic principles of sustainable construction and structural behavior
    Understand the basic principles of mechanical, electrical and piping systems

 


Curriculum

The University of Wyoming’s Construction Management program uniquely positions graduates by providing an innovative curriculum with an emphasis on BIM (building information modeling). BIM uses virtual design and computer modeling to provide a digital representation of the building site that informs early decision making in the construction process to better predict and plan for the demands of new construction. BIM has become a standard in the construction industry and makes complex construction sites safer, more efficient and more cost effective through the use of technology. In addition to BIM coursework, the curriculum also includes engineering, business, and design coursework. This combination of coursework is designed to provide a well-rounded curriculum that incorporates cutting edge technology. After the first graduating class, this program is expected to receive accreditation from the American Council for Construction Education, ACCE.

The program is part of the Civil and Architectural Engineering Department, within the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Review the full curriculum, minor/certificate program and flow chart information.
