The interdisciplinary degree of the Ph.D. in Engineering Science has a concentration in Construction Management. This Ph.D. requires at least two sub-areas of specialization within one or more academic departments, in addition to the major concentration area of study.
The College of Engineering has an interdisciplinary Ph.D. program with a concentration in Construction Management that allows students to pursue graduate study and research within interdisciplinary areas that can cross multiple disciplines or multiple departments or in program areas not associated with an existing department. The CM Department utilizes this program for students wishing to develop their research skills in construction related topics while pursuing a Ph.D. degree. Qualified students must possess degrees with B.S. or M.S. in engineering, construction management, or other related applied sciences. The student will be required to complete a minimum of 54 semester hours of approved course work beyond the bachelor's degree and prepare a dissertation acceptable to his or her advisory committee and the Graduate School. At least half of the course work (27 semester hours) must be taken in courses offered by engineering departments within the college.
