What is a Graduate Certificate in Design and Construction Management?

The Graduate Certificate in Design and Construction Management (DCM) is a graduate degree program requiring 15 credit hours of instruction beyond a Bachelor's Degree, or about half the instructional requirements of a Master's Degree. Most credits are applicable to a related Master's program should you desire to continue your education. Engineers and construction professionals will enhance their skills to help prepare for more responsible jobs and to help advance to more responsible management positions.

The program permits flexible course selection within three major subject areas, human relations and communications, construction project management, and construction technical issues. See our course matrix for specific course offerings.

This program was designed in collaboration with construction industry employers and continues to engage industry as a partner in course development.
