Mechanical and Electrical Construction Management

What you can’t see behind a building’s walls is what makes it hum, from electrical conduit to copper pipe, and from sophisticated HVAC systems to emergency power generators. If these systems don’t work, the building doesn’t either. The best construction managers must understand the mechanical and electrical systems of a project to make the overall project a success.

You’ll learn side-by-side with professors who have worked in the industry and thrive on combining theory, imagination and real-world application. In this innovative environment, you'll learn by doing - gaining deep technical knowledge and applied skills in your chosen discipline coupled with problem-solving, critical-thinking, communication and leadership skills employers desire.
