Prerequisites for the construction management and technology degree include proficiency in precalculus math, physics, strength of materials, estimating, scheduling, contracts and computer applications in construction.

This online construction management degree features areas of study in construction management, technology and facility management. The construction management and technology emphasis will help you achieve upper level management positions in various sectors of the construction industry through improved competency in project, program, and organization management. The facility management emphasis supports your career goals related to the maintenance, operation, renovation or decommissioning of existing facilities.

Does construction management and technology require a degree?

 

While construction managers aren’t always required to have a degree, skills and experience can give you a competitive edge when applying for jobs or bidding for contracts. More and more, construction managers hold degrees in construction science, architecture or engineering. This construction management degree will give you specialized skills, abilities and hands-on experience that will make you a strong candidate for construction management and technology positions, in the US and abroad. Students that have an undergraduate degree in a non-construction field often find that a master's in construction management and technology helps them to transition into the construction industry; indeed, many of our most successful construction management alumni have undergraduate degrees in another field and leveraged their ASU construction management and technology degree to enter into the construction field.

Featured courses

This construction management and technology degree program requires 30 credit hours, generally spread over 10 courses. Students can choose one three-credit hour course from each of the core areas listed below for a total of nine credit hours.
