Bachelor of Science in Building Construction

The Bachelor of Science in Building Construction (BSBC) gives students a complete view of the building life cycle, including design, construction and operation. Students learn technology-driven methods of construction management and critical leadership skills. The curriculum shows students how prefabrication, 3D printing, virtual and augmented reality, drones, and robotics can impact safety, profitability, and sustainability. It's the major for students who prefer the practical and tangible aspects of the built environment, incorporating perspectives of construction contractors, owners, and facility managers.


The BSBC program consists of 120 credit hours plus wellness. It includes five free electives that can be used for a minor, three professional electives, and a Capstone project. An entrepreneurial component to the curriculum teaches students business concepts and communication skills, preparing them for business ventures in construction or technologies.
