Civil & Environmental Engineering

Build a foundation for success

If you enjoy the intellectual challenges of architecture, engineering, technology, and business, yet long to be in the thick of things and produce a tangible result—something of lasting value—consider a career in construction management.

We offer two paths in construction management that can help you learn and apply the skills that are necessary to manage a construction project and team. Our certificate program consists of eight courses for a comprehensive curriculum, including trade-specific electives, while our specialization program consists of four core courses that offer foundational knowledge in the field.

If you are interested in becoming a building contractor, and need to take the Contractors State License Board (CSLB)® Exam, we also offer an exam prep course taught by an expert in the field.

Find a path that works for you.

Because of the Construction Management certificate program, I have successfully transitioned into the exact job I wanted. The knowledge I gained serves me in the work I am doing every day. Thank you!
