Master of Science in Construction Management

The online Master of Science in Construction Management program at Texas A&M University innovates on traditional construction methods. This competitive, multidisciplinary program allows anyone around the world to pursue an advanced degree in construction science, but is meant primarily for those within the industry to continue their education while still working in the field.

Take the Lead in Project Construction

The online Master of Science in Construction Management is designed primarily for those with a bachelor’s degree in architecture, engineering, construction science, or business who want to break into construction management and for working professionals in the architecture, engineering, and construction industries who want to pursue an advanced degree while continuing to work in the field. Our innovative, industry-targeted approach will teach you to leverage critical thinking, processes, and construction technology, and will prepare you for leadership roles within the construction industry, including the commercial, industrial, civil, and residential construction sectors.
