Bachelor of Science

The four-year program in Construction Management leads to the Bachelor of Science degree. Major emphasis is placed on organizing and managing the construction phase of society's efforts to improve the environment. The constructor is an important member of the building team and requires a professional knowledge of techniques, materials, equipment, job planning and cost control to add to the contributions of the planning and design professions. Graduates of this program can help supply the urgent needs of the construction industry and its related fields.

The undergraduate education provided at Zaman University gives graduating Construction Managers a fundamental understanding of all building systems. The breadth of technical knowledge includes study in:

• Structural studies

• Mechanical studies

• Project activities such as:



          Construction methods


          Building operations


Construction Management Program aims to prepare students for professional engineering practice or graduate study in the construction, management and operation of building systems. Students learn to manage the construction projects. After their basic preparation in all areas, the Construction Engineering Management Program will emphasis in:

• Construction management

• Cost estimation

• Financial Management of the Construction project

• Project Delivery Methods

To use this knowledge, the graduate must have a good foundation in engineering management and design as they relate to building systems and construction.
