The School of Building Construction's undergraduate program captures progressive, hands-on technology with an integrated and entrepreneurial approach — aligned with the construction industry which is now diversified and technology-adopting. This STEM-designated program is the perfect major for students who prefer the practical and tangible aspects of the built environment.

Why Get a Degree in Building Construction?

Do you want to have an occupation where you get to visit (and show off) your work every time you drive around a town? Do you want to make a big impact in creating the built environment's future? Would you like to balance working outdoors and in the office? Then a career in construction may be for you!

Construction program graduates are highly sought after in the industry. Several studies have determined a degree in construction to be one of the most lucrative investments. 

During this program, you will learn that a career in the construction industry goes beyond a muddy construction site. Many career paths possible with a degree in building construction.

Construction Science and Management at Georgia Tech

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. The curriculum shows students how prefabrication, 3D printing, virtual and augmented reality, drones, and robotics can impact safety, profitability, and sustainability.

Our new integrated approach to construction science and management prepares students more holistically. Rather than focus primarily on construction and the housing sector, students learn from day one a technology-driven approach to design management processes of the building life cycle.

They study how to use point clouds to render quality inspections of structures and make construction safer with fewer errors—for example, using drones to save the lives of roofers. With technology, they also learn how to improve building processes and energy performance, and how to implement cost-efficient building practices.

Complement Any Major With Our Minor

The Minor in Sustainable Development and Construction, a dynamic program designed to equip students with the essential skills required for success in the ever-evolving landscape of the construction industry. This minor offers a comprehensive curriculum that delves into the fundamentals of construction management and real estate development, all while emphasizing sustainability throughout every course.

Students Discuss Their First Year of BSCSM*
