Admission requirements are specified based on the entry status of potential students: freshman, transfer students, technical degree transfer students, ECU transfer students, or second degree students. Progression through the major is two-tiered: lower division requirements and upper division requirements. 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.
Students are admitted to the lower division and must apply for admission to the upper division. The complete listing of admission requirements can be found on the departmental website or at the College of Engineering and Technology Advising Center. Once admitted, 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 for one semester. Summer sessions are not part of the departmental probation period. Probation status will be allowed for a maximum of one semester; after that time students with a cumulative grade point average below 2.0 will be dropped from the department.
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 of Construction Management 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.
