About the Minor

The Construction Management minor is designed to provide students an opportunity to study basic concepts of construction, materials, techniques, design, and managerial skills required for the construction industry. The minor has entrance criteria and consists of nine courses beginning with CON 101. The minor will take students a minimum of five semesters to complete.

How to add the Construction Management minor

Students must meet with a Construction Management advisor to declare interest in the minor and will be given an override to register for CON 101. An application must be completed to declare the minor. Once a student satisfies the entrance criteria, the minor will be added and the student will be allowed to register for additional required Construction Management courses. Students are admitted each semester in May and December.

  • Complete CON 101 with a “B” grade or better
