Bachelor of Science Degree in Construction Management
Construction management is the process of coordinating and managing residential, commercial, industrial, and highway construction projects from the site survey until completion. The Construction Management program at LSU covers all aspects of this process. Modern construction has been rapidly evolving, incorporating sophisticated new construction technologies and new information-driven management practices to drive productivity improvements. These changes have in turn driven a high demand for graduates knowledgeable in these technologies and practices.
The department recognizes that its construction management graduates are professional constructors, distinct from engineers and architects. The curriculum is designed to blend the technical aspects with the business management aspects of the construction industry to produce a professional graduate who can manage construction processes effectively and efficiently.
