College of Engineering, Computer Science & Construction Management

B.S. in Construction Management

The construction industry is one of the largest industries driving today’s world economy. Due to the extraordinary sophistication of modern construction operations and the high skill level required of construction managers, there is a near unlimited demand for university-educated construction project and corporate managers.

In 1989 Chico State University’s Department of Construction Management was established to help satisfy industry demand. Today Chico State’s Bachelor of Science Degree in Construction Management is the largest program of its type in California and one of the largest in the country, and it is fully accredited by the ACCE (American Council for Construction Education). The success of our alumni within the industry, the many regional and national awards won by our undergraduates, the construction industry’s continual aggressive recruiting of our graduates, and the construction industry’s continuing financial support of our program provide evidence of our success.
