The Construction Management program at Drexel University has been growing and developing with the industry since its inception in 1975. While an understanding of the technical aspects of construction is extremely important, it is also essential that construction professionals become proficient in management and leadership skills. These critical competencies can be developed through formal construction education at the university level. Drexel University offers both Bachelor and Master of Science degrees in Construction Management.
Construction management practitioners work in various construction organizations such as CM firms, general contractors, specialty contractors, design-builders, consulting engineers, architects, and real estate developers. Construction management practitioners are also employed in various capacities representing project owners, suppliers, regulators, lenders, and other stakeholders involved with construction. Positions include project managers, coordinators, estimators, schedulers, safety specialists, business development managers, and many others. Some rise to senior-level executive positions, while others own and operate their own firms.
