Construction Management



In 1961, construction crews started working around the clock to build Seattle’s famous Space Needle. To construct a base that would ensure stability in an earthquake, they dug a hole 30-feet deep and 120-feet across and filled it with 467 truckloads of cement.

But those cement trucks didn’t show up by themselves, and neither did the construction crews. Behind the scenes were construction managers, the people who coordinated the entire effort. If you major in construction management, you’ll learn all you need to fill their shoes.
