We Shape the Future of Construction

We Shape the Future of Construction

We see building construction as so much more than concrete and rebar. Our approach builds new skillsets for technology-filled environments, designs new construction processes, and connects influential stakeholders in real estate development.

The School of Building Construction studies how building projects address the needs of society, the environment, and the economy, and how the built environment shapes those areas in turn. We work across multiple disciplines — architecture, engineering, finance, city planning, and public policy — to meet advancing needs for efficient, sustainable building practices.

Bachelor of Science in Building Construction

We designed our undergraduate program to give students a complete view of the building life cycle. They learn technology-driven methods of construction management and critical leadership skills. It's the perfect major for students who prefer the practical and tangible aspects of the built environment.

Our graduate programs merge creative and practical approaches to building projects. We teach students to lead every step of a building's existence: from site selection through architectural design; then from engineering through financing; and from planning sustainable footprints to eventual renovation or demolition.
