Learn about the Construction Engineering and Management MasterTrack™ Certificate

Enroll for next cohort by July 17, 2023.

The Construction Management MasterTrack™ Certificate will prepare you to thrive in today’s global construction industry, which needs more highly-skilled professionals than ever. Demand for construction managers is growing and is expected to continue to climb in the U.S. and around the world. Construction engineers and project managers are involved in the planning, design, operations, maintenance, rehabilitation and evaluation of constructed facilities. However, many engineering, management, and architecture professionals in the construction industry lack the knowledge needed to coordinate an entire construction project. Through projects designed by faculty from the University of Michigan Tishman Construction Management Program, you’ll learn to apply the accounting, project management and decision-making techniques vital to construction projects worldwide. With an effort of around five hours per week for 6-7 months, the Construction Management MasterTrack Certificate program will prepare you to apply your knowledge to a management job in the construction industry. 

An important benefit of taking the MasterTrack Certificate online is that it offers students 6 credits of acceleration towards the U-M CEE residential Master of Engineering (MEng) in Construction Engineering & Management degree, resulting in significant cost savings to students who decide to come to the UM campus. This document provides additional information about the MasterTrack Certificate Program Pathway to the MEng in CEM.
