Message from Department Chair

The construction management program at CSU, Chico has graduated over 2,900 students since 1977 going into the construction field and managing the construction of schools, hospitals, bridges, highways, dams, water systems, hotels, offices and industrial plants throughout California, the US and the world.

During this academic career, students of construction management experience the tradition of community service, competition and teamwork. Students experience real-life scenarios of coordinating, designing, managing and building a multitude of community service projects in Chico and sometimes-other communities. These projects help people that cannot help themselves. Students also compete against other construction management programs around the country in different construction management competitions. These competitions usually involve planning, estimating, scheduling and contractibility type issues. The construction management students at CSU, Chico also have the opportunity to be involved with several different clubs that represent different sectors of our industry.

We, the faculty of construction management, would like to congratulate past graduates of our program and welcome new students into our academic community.
