Construction is an extremely complex endeavor. As a construction management major, you will deal with every facet of a construction project. The Construction Management degree includes courses on architecture, labor relations, cost evaluation, materials handling, city planning, blue print reading and more. This is a field that is much more complex than the name may imply. Construction managers often pursue graduate work in Civil Engineering as well.
"Construction Management is the management of the fascinating and complex process that results in the roads, bridges, buildings and industrial facilities upon which we all depend. The built environment involves marshaling the resources required ― labor, materials, equipment, time and money ― and then translating the work of architects and engineers into tangible structures."
