The Master of Science degree in Construction Management (MSCM) program in the College of Architecture and Environmental Design (CAED) prepares professionals to meet the increasing leadership demand in integrated projects in architecture-engineering-construction (AEC) industry. The world is rapidly changing, and the projects require more collaborative work processes among AEC industry professionals. The MSCM program is housed in the CAED, where students have unique opportunities for exposure to collaborative learning experience among construction and design academics, construction professionals, and design practitioners.
