The College of Engineering and Computing will launch a new Professional MS in Construction Management Program in August 2012. Classes will take place in a unique accelerated one year Saturday-only format designed for working professionals and executives. The program, offered through the College’s OHL School of Construction,  follows the success of the College’s Professional MS in Engineering Management Program launched last year integrating business, law and engineering in a team-based learning environment.  The condensed curriculum, online-available course videos, and catered meals provide a flexible convenient alternative to the traditional MS program. The program is expected to draw working engineers, architects, construction and business professionals from across South Florida.

“With connections to the local and international construction industry, the FIU College of Engineering and Computing together with the OHL School of Construction is in a unique position to support the development of construction industry leaders and, in turn, the economic growth of the region,” said Amir Mirmiran, dean of the College of Engineering and Computing. “The Professional MS in Construction Management program is part of our continuing commitment to collaborative engagement with our local and global communities.”

The program—taught by the same distinguished faculty who teach in the traditional MS in Construction Management program—consists of five ten-week terms, with two courses per term taught over 12 months. The program is delivered at the University’s Broward Pines Center in Pembroke Pines.

The first cohort in the Professional MS in Construction Management program begins August 4. For more information, visit, or contact the College’s Division of External Programs at or 305-284-3701.
