The Department of Construction Management offers one of the largest programs in the southeastern region of the US, and has a highly qualified and experienced faculty that represents the fields of architecture, construction management, civil engineering, and mechanical engineering.
Admission requirements are specified based on the entry status of potential students: freshman, transfer students, technical degree transfer students, ECU transfer students, major changes or second degree students. Potential majors should refer to the departmental website for full descriptions of each entry status category and the associated requirements for admission. Admission to the university does not guarantee admission to the construction management degree program.
Successful progression through the major requires a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0. Students falling below a 2.0 cumulative grade point average will not be allowed to take construction management classes and will be placed on departmental probation until their GPA once again is above a 2.0. Summer sessions are not part of the departmental probation period.
The Department of Construction Management requires all construction management students to complete a minimum of 500 documented hours of construction work with state licensed general contractor, subcontractor, construction management company, or other approved employment. The work experience must be completed, submitted and approved prior to the final semester of study.
The Department also requires students to have a laptop computer in order to accomplish academic work. The ACE Student Computer Support Center at www.ecu.edu/ace lists the current computer specifications meeting the department’s requirements.
