EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – The University of Evansville (EU) will launch a four-year Bachelor of Science in Construction Management.
An EU press release says a construction manager is responsible for planning, coordinating, budgeting and overseeing a range of construction projects. The job includes not only administrative tasks in the office, but also on-site work, monitoring projects and making crucial decisions for the team and the project.
EU officials say this area continues to grow within the three states and across the country. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, construction management jobs are expected to grow eleven percent between 2020 and 2030, faster than the average for other occupations.
EU officials say that over the course of four years, the EU’s construction management program will place a heavy emphasis on technical and managerial skills. Students will learn design and planning concepts as well as construction methods, equipment, and codes. Since safety is a major factor in construction, a graduate level course will focus on safety management methodology and OSHA compliance.
