Construction Management Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: List of Academic Programs and Curricula

Much of what is designed by civil engineers is intended to be built or constructed in some manner. The goals of the minor are to teach fundamental technical and leadership skills and promote a greater understanding of relationships among construction and the other professions to students from the various engineering disciplines and other majors who may in some way become involved in the planning, construction, maintenance or operation of built systems. For this reason, the minor is open to any courses within the undergraduate Construction Management program (subject to the within described credit and course prerequisites), and it will allow students to select courses that best fit their interests and complement their curricula.

A basic understanding of construction is necessary to take full advantage of the courses in the Construction Management curriculum. CE-UY 1502  Leadership and Foundations of Construction Management (formerly CE 1504) is the first  major course in the Construction Management curriculum and serves as the introduction to major course for the program. CE-UY 1502  is a prerequisite to all other undergraduate Construction Management courses, except CE-UY 4533  Construction Law. This prerequisite can also be satisfied by an appropriate introduction to major course in another curriculum, such as CE-UY 1002  Introduction to Civil Engineering. The determination as to whether any other course may satisfy this prerequisite is subject to the evaluation and approval of the Construction Management Program Director. In addition, students who have taken CE-UY 1002  (or its predecessor course) or another acceptable prerequisite may take CE-UY 1502  (or have taken its predecessor course) with the approval of the Construction Management Program Director in satisfaction of the minor requirement; however, students may not count more than one introduction to major course taken after the first year enrolled toward the required number of credits for graduation. All other prerequisites shall be as stated in the Bulletin.

The individual courses taken to fulfill the requirements of the minor each may be 1, 2, 3 or 4 credits. Students must earn a passing grade in not less than five courses and not less than 14 credits.
