Program Description

In any given construction project the disciplines of architecture, engineering, and management converge. Recognizing this fact is a student’s first step towards becoming a real-world leader in the fields of project and construction management. The second step is taken by enrolling in Norwich University’s Construction Management degree program, where students learn the foundational skills necessary to take projects from the conceptual stage straight through to the grand opening ceremony.


  • Prepare students to excel in construction management and related fields.

  • Make clear to students that above all else, the Construction Management profession is committed to bettering the world.

  • Provide fundamental, hands-on education in the construction management field.

  • Foster creativity, critical thinking, and problem solving abilities and motivate students to consider the impact of their work on society

  • Enable students to be leaders in their profession, community, nation, and the world.


Construction Management students are taught to assess, strategize, and execute projects from an interdisciplinary approach in which facets of architecture, engineering, and management are taken into account. Along with business, engineering and architecture courses, students are required to take Construction Management courses specifically designed to prepare students for situations they may encounter while on the job site and in the office. Additionally, core studies include courses in the humanities, social sciences, mathematics and sciences.

The Program Educational Objectives (PEO's) of the Construction Management Program are to produce graduates who, within two to four years after graduation are able to:

  • Lead project teams in their chosen field progressively rising to positions of technical or managerial leadership.

  • Be respected and recognized for technical and managerial competence in the creation of solutions that balance sustainability, societal and economic issues.

  • Become active citizens in their profession, community, the nation and the world.

  • Communicate to both technical and non-technical audience.

  • Actively engage in continuing education throughout life.

Students awarded the Bachelor of Science with a major in Construction Management sit for the Construction Management in Training Exams (CMIT) exams.  These students must have a foundational understanding of:

  • Construction project management from pre-design through commissioning

  • project life-cycle and sustainability

  • health and safety, accident prevention, and regulatory compliance

  • law, contract documents administration, and dispute prevention and resolution

  • materials, labor, and methods of construction
