The construction industry is an interesting and dynamic career that combines the elements of technical knowledge, management skills and creativity to breathe life into a set of plans, turning them into a real structure. The Construction Manager needs the technical ability to successfully interface with design professionals such as architects and engineers as well as the management skills to work with the talented trades persons that perform the actual work of construction. These skills are acquired in the classroom as well as through internships and co-op education programs and in all phases of the construction industry such as building construction as well as heavy/highway and utility construction. These internship and co-op opportunities are supported by our industry partners.

The students in NJIT’s Construction Management Technology (CMT) program acquire a broad set of management skills as well as business, management, communication, and technical knowledge in order to successfully enter the construction management field. Graduates of our program are successful contractors, construction managers, project executives, project managers and construction inspectors. Graduates of the program are eligible to pursue graduate degrees in civil engineering, management or related areas and students may participate in the BS/MS Program ( The full four-year curriculum for the program is shown below. Students who wish to enter the program as a transfer student are typically students with an A.A.S. degree in Civil or Construction Engineering Technology and should have completed most or all of the courses, or their equivalents, in the first two years of the program as shown below. In the case of all students, both four-year and transfer, a minimum of 120 credits is required for graduation.
