Management (SDC-M)

The SDC-Management (SDC-M) track prepares students for engineering and management roles in all phases of the development of major facilities, including heavy, industrial, and building construction. It emphasizes management techniques useful in organizing, planning and controlling the activities of diverse specialists working within the unique project environment of the construction industry.

SDC-M offers courses across multiple programs within and outside the Department of Civil and Envrionmental Engineering, covering topics such as:

  • Building information modeling
  • International construction projects
  • Planning and control techniques and technology
  • Industrialized construction
  • Project and company organizational strategy
  • Innovative contract mechanisms
  • Building systems integration
  • Project finance
  • Real estate development
  • Labor relations
  • HVAC design and construction
  • Equipment and methods of construction

SDC-M class requirements are:

  • Project Assessment and Budgeting (CEE 240)
  • Managing Fabrication and Construction (CEE 241)
  • Life Cycle Assessment (CEE 226)
  • Organization Design for Projects and Companies (CEE 242)
  • Watson Seminar (CEE 258)
  • Global Projects Seminar (CEE 241C)

Additional related course work is available from other programs within the department, from other engineering departments and from other schools in the university such as Earth Sciences and the Graduate School of Business. The Management track allows students substantial flexibility to tailor their program of study for careers with general contractors, specialty contractors, real estate or infrastructure developers, or facility owners and operators.
