Thinking about the discipline: NKU’s construction management program is nationally recognized and accredited by the American Council for Construction Education. Our graduates are equipped with both the theoretical and applied skills required to manage a construction project from inception to completion. The program covers the technical aspects of project design and execution in addition to management and administration aspects required to successfully deliver project completion on time, within budget, and meeting the client’s expectations.

The balanced curriculum of 120 credit hours includes two 300-hour internships, allowing students to learn on the job and apply what they learn in class to a real-world project. Students in the program can work toward earning a minor in business, marketing, or entrepreneurship to complement their construction education. Graduates occupy positions such as project engineers, project managers, project superintendents, construction estimators, construction schedulers, and construction safety officers.

Special opportunities for our students: The Construction Management program offers awards for outstanding undergraduates. Multiple scholarships are offered, including the Macy’s Rudolph V. Javosky Memorial Endowed Scholarship, the Spirit of Construction Foundation Scholarship, and the Construction Management Industry Advisory Board Scholarship. Students have the opportunity to participate in the Construction Management Association student organization as well as the sub-organizations within that umbrella group including the Mechanical Contractors of America, the National Association of Homebuilders, the American Concrete Institute student organizations, and the Sigma Lambda Chi International Construction Honor Society.

You should also know: Students must fulfill all requirements for the major and either the standard business component or the minor in entrepreneurial studies offered by the Department of Management.

To earn the Bachelor of Science in Construction Management, students must earn a grade of C or better in all construction management core courses.

Surveying Track

This program is a partnership degree program between Cincinnati State Technical and Community College and NKU. Students pursuing this track must complete the associate degree in civil engineering technology - surveying from CSTCC and the advanced surveying certificate program from CSTCC. Students then transfer to NKU and complete additional coursework according to the articulation agreement between NKU and CSTCC. Graduates from this bachelor’s degree program will qualify to sit for the Professional Registration Test in Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana after serving the proper residency under a licensed surveyor. Students interested in pursuing the Indiana surveyor’s license are required to take approximately three additional science courses as outlined by the state of Indiana.
