http://colsa.unh.edu/tsas/ct/construction-management

In the Construction Management concentration, students prepare for careers in land development, construction contracting and management, and land-use planning. Students learn not only how to build well but how to build wisely. They study construction and its related technologies, dealing with material selection and design, and design of foundation and drainage systems. They also examine environmental and land development issues by studying residential and commercial septic,waste disposal, and municipal environmental systems, recycling, and effective energy management. Some graduates elect to continue their education in Bachelor of Science programs in civil engineering or community development.

Graduates of the construction management concentration find employment in a variety of building industry-related positions.
