Construction management graduates commonly start their careers as field engineers and are qualified to follow career tracks towards any of the following:

  • Project Manager
  • Superintendent
  • Quality Control/Quality Assurance Manager
  • Safety Manager
  • Estimator
  • Scheduler
  • Contract Administrator/Manager

As any of these, graduates have the opportunity to work for private and publicly held construction companies, general contractors, subcontractors and specialty contractors, owners or owners groups, consulting firms, architecture firms, real estate developers, or city, state and federal government entities.

Graduates also have the opportunity to work in a diverse variety of sectors in the construction industry including commercial, residential, heavy-civil and industrial construction.

Our students have been incredibly successful in terms of securing full-time employment after graduation. The construction management program at the School of Design and Construction coordinates and facilitates recruiting efforts in-house for both internships and full-time employment.
