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 a 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.
