Student Success Story
"The MSCM program at Wentworth has helped me to build advanced knowledge in the construction field and has also allowed me to gain valuable industry connections with both my fellow classmates and instructors."
Michael Seidenberg, MSCM Class of 2013

Master of Science
The Master of Science in Construction Management (MSCM) at Wentworth Institute of Technology is designed to educate students in fundamental post-graduate management principles. Students will gain a strong understanding of construction and business management concepts, from pre-design through construction closeout.
Graduates of the MSCM program will be prepared to assume leadership positions across the construction industry. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, construction managers' median annual salary in Massachusetts was approximately $92,000 in 2010, and nationally the occupation is projected to grow at a faster than average rate of 17% through 2020.
The MSCM program is designed for working professionals, with online and on-campus delivery format options that allow students to complete the degree in less than two years while still being able to work full-time and fulfill their personal responsibilities.
A key feature of the program is the opportunity to build strong professional relationships. Our instructors are proven leaders in the field and many of them work full-time in the construction industry. Our students also work in construction and related industries, creating an ideal learning environment in which students learn from both their instructor and their peers.
