B.A.S. in Construction Science and Management

Graduates from the Bachelor of Applied Science in Construction Science and Management will gain knowledge and skills that are valued by all facets of the construction industry. Construction graduates will gain knowledge of structural systems, soils, site development, surveying, contract administration, building modeling, estimating, scheduling, and evaluating project performance. Students graduating with the B.A.S. in Construction Science and Management find themselves with the skills and knowledge to compete in a regional, national, and international job market.

Continuing Your Education

The Bachelor of Applied Science in Construction Science and Management is designed to allow a pathway for graduates from an approved AAS degree* to continue their education with a Bachelor’s degree. The program allows for up to 23 hours of technical (WECM) credits from the AAS to be counted towards the BAS degree.

*AAS programs are articulated through the North Texas Community College Consortium Pathways or as agreed to by the Department Head in Engineering Technology.

Coursework for this program is offered on the Stephenville and the Ft. Worth-Chisolm Trail campuses.

Designed for the Construction Industries

The diverse set of skills that are needed in construction and the higher pay opportunities that exist within the field and related industries, draw workers with an amplitude of educational backgrounds and experiences. One of the goals of the construction science program is to provide a course of study that can accept this wide range of backgrounds and experiences that then provides a rich education to graduates who enter the construction field in either a technical or management capacity.

Program Mission

The mission of the Construction Science and Management program is to achieve a regionally and nationally recognized, student-focused, and industry-oriented construction program that provides graduates with knowledge and skills in management and supervisory professions that are valued by the construction industry.

Program Objectives

The BAS in Construction Science and Management program produces graduates who:

  • Manage complex construction projects including the bidding, contracting, and implementation phase within an interdisciplinary team environment.,
  • Employ the tools and processes required in the construction field to perform field operations and management,
  • Communicate effectively in a professional environment,
  • Continue growth in professional knowledge, and
  • Achieve recognition and/or compensation consistent with their educational achievements.

Construction Science and Management Program

The construction science and management program focuses on hands-on learning with experienced faculty. In addition,

  • 30% of the program uses lab-based courses that are focused on application-based learning
  • Opportunities for internships and summer employment is available to gain more experience
  • Courses and labs are offered outside of the normal 8 to 5, Monday through Friday times so that working students have more opportunities to be in the classroom

Active Career for Active People

The need for construction managers that work on-site to make daily decisions will grow as overall construction activity expands in the US and worldwide. Population and business growth will result in the construction of many new residences, office buildings, retail outlets, hospitals, schools, restaurants, and other structures over the coming decade. Also, the need to improve portions of the national infrastructure will spur employment growth for the creation of roads and bridges. Successful construction managers and field engineers will be actively engaged to make sure these complex projects get done on time and on schedule.
