LIFE AS A CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT STUDENT AT NORWICH

In short, its concept to creation with a mix of classroom and real world, experiential study. 

That is the challenge we will give you; to master the multidisciplinary skills necessary to take projects from concept to grand opening. We will introduce you to residential, commercial, and industrial construction management principles. 

Your foundation of knowledge will grow to include the skills to assess, plan, strategize, and execute projects. We will test your ability to find, formulate, and solve broadly defined technical or scientific problems. We will guide you to think ethically and responsibly about the impact of certain solutions within global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts. And, importantly for your future clients, you will develop the knowledge to manage and deliver projects that meet health and safety code specifications--on time and on budget. 

FIND SOLUTIONS USING COLLABORATION SKILLS

Construction management is not an individual endeavor, you will need to develop and nurture the all-important planning, negotiation, communication, and collaborations skills needed to work with developers, architects, engineers, designers, and other key stakeholders. 

We will spend time cultivating your communication skills to effectively interact with all types of stakeholders whether they technical and non-technical audiences, teams of experts, or clients to address goals, plan tasks, meet deadlines, and analyze risk and uncertainty. 

TO SET YOURSELF APART

Consider joining one of the Leadership Academies, developed using our bedrock Leadership Development System with an experiential learning approach for those interested in joining either the private sector or government workforce to serve our country. These academies focus upon pathway opportunities for tuition assistance, fellowships, and internship programs.

BROADEN YOUR CAREER OPTIONS.

While you are finishing your degree talk to your faculty about enrolling in one of our Accelerated Master’s Pathways where you can apply your upper-level undergraduate courses and training into graduate credit and finish within 12-18 months after graduation online.

No doubt you will find the work to be demanding and complex, but you will feel rewarded when you start tackling projects of all sizes as a confident professional.
