The Construction Management Department at Wentworth is a cohesive group of experienced faculty and staff working together to provide students with a nationally recognized Construction Management education. The curriculum in Construction Management at Wentworth leads to a Bachelor of Science degree that is accredited by the American Council of Construction Education.
The Construction Management Program focuses on three fundamental principles.
1. Creative Problem Solving/Spirit of Innovation
A successful career in construction requires an ability to solve problems. Our approach for providing these skills is to utilize the collaborative opportunities available in the College of Architecture, Design and Construction. Innovative problem solving requires a broad base of experiences. Our students are exposed to other disciplines throughout their educational career at Wentworth. They interact with Designers and Engineers. They work together on projects. These projects are not only academic in nature but are projects that industry has requested assistance. This exposure will provide a foundation for creative problem solving which will serve the student throughout their professional career.
The construction industry is based upon teams with different backgrounds working together to deliver a construction project that is-on time, on budget, and functional.
The learning environment at Wentworth provides the opportunity for the Construction Management student to gain first-hand experience working with designers and engineers using collaborative projects during the academic year as well as working on major construction projects during CO-OP.
These experiences lay the foundation for a sustainable professional career.
3. Rich Learning Experience
