Program overview

The M.S.C.M. curriculum consists of 30 credit hours of graduate-level courses. Students have the following options:

1.     Thesis Option: Students must complete 24 credit hours of course work, as well as a 6-credit-hour master’s thesis in a research topic agreed upon with their graduate advisor. A thesis defense will be presented before a committee of three professors, including the graduate advisor.  To earn the required 6 credit hours toward the thesis, the student must enroll in two separate semesters in EICM 698 and EICM 699 (pass/fail courses).This option is recommended for students wishing to pursue doctoral studies.

2.     Non-Thesis Option: Students must complete 30 credit hours of course work, and document a Case Study focusing on a practice-oriented topic agreed upon with the Program Coordinator. Students who have not accumulated two years of work experience prior to graduation must also successfully complete EICM 688 – M.S.C.M. Project. Curriculum offerings are structured around a set of four (4) core construction engineering courses, combined with one course in Decision Management. The requirements are summarized in the following tables.
