About the Major

Construction management is the overall planning, coordination, and control of a project from inception to completion. The CM major addresses issues related to the management of multiple project sites and the applications of resource management, schedule control, cost control, design and other requirements of the construction process.

The Construction Management department at Colorado State University is committed to providing an equal opportunity program for underrepresented populations in our student body and the construction industry, including all genders, ethnic minorities, persons with disabilities, and veterans.

Transfer Students

Students planning to transfer to CSU to pursue Construction Management should consult with our academic advisor early in the planning process to determine transfer equivalencies and applicability of transfer coursework to the required CM curriculum.

Once you apply to CSU, the Registrar’s Office will complete a transfer evaluation and provide a report of how your undergraduate courses transfer to CSU. The CM academic advisor uses this report to identify how your transfer coursework applies to the required CM curriculum and determine the remaining courses required to complete a major in Construction Management.
