New SECCM Labs Building

RWU is committed to delivering real-world learning experiences that build strong analytical and technical skills for our students. That’s why we’re building SECCM Labs, a hub of laboratories, project rooms and open spaces dedicated to hands-on, collaborative teaching and learning. Located in the heart of campus, SECCM Labs will give our students the opportunity to test designs and apply their new skills in a laboratory environment.

Construction Management

The accredited undergraduate Construction Management program at RWU prepares future leaders of residential, commercial and highway building. Through classes, labs and hands-on projects in engineering, business, math, science, law and liberal arts, you’ll learn how to manage construction projects from start to finish -- including scheduling, budgeting, choosing materials and safely supervising people. That’s why construction employers regularly report that our graduates exceed expectations for performance. The graduate program offering provides advanced coursework in project management, construction finance, law, and other topics for aspiring construction leaders.
