Doctor of Philosophy in Engineering Science with a concentration in Construction Management
The College of Engineering has an interdisciplinary Ph.D. program that allows students to pursue graduate study and research within interdisciplinary areas that can cross multiple disciplines or multiple departments or in program areas not associated with an existing department. The CM Department utilizes this program for students wishing to develop their research skills in construction related topics while pursuing a Ph.D. degree. Qualified students must possess degrees with B.S. or M.S. in engineering, construction management, or other related applied sciences. The student will be required to complete a minimum of 54 semester hours of approved course work beyond the bachelor's degree and prepare a dissertation acceptable to his or her advisory committee and the Graduate School. At least half of the course work (27 semester hours) must be taken in courses offered by engineering departments within the college.
