Our high-impact construction management program as part of the UW-Platteville Department of Industrial Studies will train you to meet today’s challenges and tomorrow’s opportunities.
The construction industry is the largest single industry in the United States. Despite experiencing record growth, nationally as well as globally, a skill and labor shortage persists in the industry. Through our program, which blends knowledge of science and technology into a professional management degree, you will learn the technical, problem-solving, and managerial skills companies seek.
Learn from faculty and industry professionals in our hands-on laboratories that include the Safety Lab, Commercial Construction Lab, and Road and Infrastructure Lab. This training will prepare you to oversee construction projects, manage risk and safety issues, and much more. Plus, with the addition of just a few courses, you can complement your degree with a minor in business or architecture, creating even more opportunities for employment.
