About the Degree

The B.S.C.M. in Urban Construction Management degree at UNO can be obtained by completing 120-credit-hour coursework over a period of 4 years.

The rapid speed and widespread extent of urbanization will demand amplified basic services for the citizens including affordable housing, reliable water, wastewater, and storm water management systems, well-planned transportation provisions, and other efficient civil infrastructure utilities. Practicing engineers, designers, and construction managers currently face the challenge of changing the status quo of their work and adapting their design/management methods to embed sustainable thought process throughout all of their decision making methods. The University of New Orleans’ Construction Management degree focuses on urban residential and commercial development coupled with rehabilitation and restoration of existing municipal infrastructures and historic preservation.
