    Course Content

    The construction science and management program prepares students to be professional constructors and managers of personnel resources, financial resources, materials, and machines. The curriculum is an engineering based management program designed to produce technically competent managers of construction. Entering students should have a background in mathematics and physics.

    The program prepares graduates to execute the designs created by engineers and architects. Graduates may enter fields of general, commercial, residential, heavy and highway, utility, mechanical, or electrical construction. Their education provides the fundamental engineering and management skills necessary for success in any of the above areas.
    Constructors work in many settings. For example, as a principal in a small construction firm, a constructor may engage in many of the activities in management, whereas a constructor in a large firm may concentrate exclusively on only one or two of the activities. Most students in the program intend to enter building, heavy/highway, or utility construction fields. Other roles, such as construction education, will normally require an advanced degree and/or professional experience.
    Through construction education, students attain a level of construction knowledge that would otherwise require decades of practical experience to develop. With this level of knowledge, graduates typically move rapidly into upper management positions in construction organizations.

    USA requirements for international students

    Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100. 

    After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department. 

    Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
