Building on the success of its partnership with Universidad Iberoamericana (UNIBE) in the Dominican Republic, the College of Engineering and Computing launched a Master of Science in Construction Management (MSCM) program in Santo Domingo. The inaugural class, which started on May 11, launched with 19 students from the Dominican Republic and the U.S. with backgrounds across construction and engineering.

The program will be taught by the College’s OHL School of Construction faculty who will travel to the Dominican Republic for the program teaching the same curriculum as the School’s MSCM program at its main campus in Miami. Students graduating from the program will receive a degree from FIU. The College currently offers undergraduate dual degree programs with UNIBE.

This is the second graduate program offered overseas, following the College’s MS in Engineering Management program operating for the sixth year in Jamaica. The College will also be launching an MS in Construction Management program in Panama starting in January 2012.

Enrollment is currently open for the program’s next start date in January 2013. For more information visit Global Programs at DEP or contact Gloria Acosta, overseas program coordinator, at 305-348-3827 or
