Overview

Key Features

The construction science and management program prepares students to be professional constructors and managers of personnel resources, financial resources, materials, and machines. 

Entering students should have a background in mathematics and physics.

The Construction Science and Management program at Kansas State University prepares graduates to execute the designs created by engineers and architects. Graduates may enter fields of general, commercial, residential, heavy and highway, utility, mechanical, or electrical construction. 

Their education provides the fundamental engineering and management skills necessary for success in any of the above areas.

Constructors work in many settings. For example, as a principal in a small construction firm, a constructor may engage in many of the activities in management, whereas a constructor in a large firm may concentrate exclusively on only one or two of the activities. Most students in the program intend to enter building, heavy/highway, or utility construction fields. Other roles, such as construction education, will normally require an advanced degree and/or professional experience.

Through construction education, students attain a level of construction knowledge that would otherwise require decades of practical experience to develop. With this level of knowledge, graduates typically move rapidly into upper management positions in construction organizations.
