Construction Management Minor

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

Much of what is planned and designed is intended to be built or constructed in some manner. The goals of the Undergraduate Minor in Construction Management are to teach fundamental technical and leadership skills and promote a greater understanding of the 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, design, construction, maintenance, or operation of built systems.

For this reason, the minor has only one required course, with the remaining courses selected from among a group of Construction Management electives, which allows students to select courses that best fit their interests and complement their curricula.

Course Requirements

A basic understanding of construction is necessary to take full advantage of the courses in the Construction Management curriculum. CE-UY 2533 Construction Project Management  is required for the minor, as well as for all students enrolled in the Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering program.

Elective Courses (Select (4) electives)

Students must also complete at least one additional CE-UY 25xx course prior to taking any level III or IV courses. The remaining courses can be selected from CE-UY 25xx, CE-UY 35xx, and CE-45xx courses, CE-UY 4643, and CE-UY 4853. 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.

NYU Catalog description of a “Minor”

A minor is an approved coherent concentration of academic study within a single discipline. In specified programs, undergraduate students may select a minor in a field distinct from or related to their major, with approval of advisers in both the major and minor fields. The name of the minor will appear on students’ transcript if the approved 14-15 credits in the minor field have been completed with at least a 2.0 GPA. With the consent of a student’s major department, some of the courses used to satisfy the minor requirements may also satisfy the required or electives course requirements in the student’s major program.
