Meet our Construction Management Chair

Change remains the one constant in the construction industry of the 21st century—and the pace of that change continues to accelerate. A Construction Management degree will help you keep pace with the day-to-day changes and challenges that this burgeoning industry presents.

In just a few years, commercial and public construction managers have seen the complexity of their projects increase significantly. Building Information Modeling and other sophisticated technologies are greatly aiding progress—but only for those schooled in their use. And the push for sustainable building practices has reached an all-time high, with calls to further reduce waste and energy use growing louder by the day.

To succeed at the management level, you can’t merely keep pace with all the new developments—you have to stay well ahead of them. That’s the driving principle behind our Construction Management program.

Our curriculum delves deep inside the challenges managers face in the field today. At NewSchool of Architecture and Design (NewSchool), seasoned experts design and teach courses to help students grasp the proliferation of new standards for building and construction materials, worker safety, energy efficiency, environmental protection, and risk mitigation.

On behalf of the faculty here, I encourage you to learn more about the Construction Management program designed to give you an edge in your career, and I hope you will be joining us soon.
