Program Description


As the largest single industry in the United States and one of the most important, construction offers unlimited opportunities to highly motivated and professionally educated men and women. Future professionals must be skilled in managing people, equipment, and capital, in addition to having a thorough knowledge of construction materials and methods and the complex technologies of modern construction. The Bachelor of Science in Construction Science and Management curriculum is the basis for a career in construction or as a developer or building management specialist.

Students who wish to change their major to Construction Science and Management must have completed at least 30 credit hours (with a minimum of 24 credit hours taken at Clemson University) with a minimum gradepoint average of 2.7; and must have successfully completed ENGL 1030 , PHYS 2070 /PHYS 2090 , and the mathematics requirement (MATH 1020  or MATH 1060 ) by the end of the semester in which the change-of-major request is made. Students should contact the Construction Science and Management Department, 122 Lee Hall. The Department’s Faculty Admissions Committee considers all requests each semester and selects the top students by cumulative grade-point average based on space availability. Students who do not meet the minimum requirements at the end of the semester are not considered.
