Construction Management Major, Bachelor of Science (BS)
The construction option focuses on selected areas of technology, physics, construction materials and techniques, emphasizing courses such as construction estimating, soils and surveying, building codes, and architecture. This concentration prepares graduates to enter and progress in supervisory or management positions in the construction industry. Initial employment may be as an estimator, laboratory technician in materials testing, construction inspector or field engineer.
Notes: Including university requirements, the program requires a minimum of 180 credits, an average of 15 credits per quarter for a 12 quarter, four-year program. The 180 credits are based upon the following assumptions:
- Students have had one year of high school drafting. If this assumption is not true, then the student will have to take METC 102;
- Students will have satisfied university competencies. If this assumption is not true, then the student will have to complete up to six more credits of classes. (See university competencies).
Grade Requirements: in order to graduate, students majoring in the department must earn a GPA ≥2.5 in departmental coursework.

University Competencies and Proficiencies
- Minimum Credits—180 cumulative credit hours
- 60 upper-division credits (300 level or above)
- 45 credits in residence (attendance) at Eastern, with at least 15 upper-division credits in major in residence at Eastern
- Minimum Cumulative GPA ≥2.0
All admitted students must officially Declare a Major by the time they reach 90 credits (junior standing).
Application for Graduation (use EagleNET) must be made at least two terms in advance of the term you expect to graduate (undergraduate and post-baccalaureate).
Use the Catalog Archives to determine two important catalog years.
SOAR calculates based on these two catalog years.
- The catalog in effect at the student's first term of current matriculation is used to determine BACR (Breadth Area Credit Requirements) and UGR (Undergraduate Graduation Requirements).
- The catalog in effect at the time the student declares a major or minor is used to determine the program requirements.
Students who successfully earn a BS in Construction Management from EWU should be able to do the following:
- communicate effectively;
- develop a commitment to quality, timeliness and continuous improvement;
- develop a recognition of the need for, and the ability to engage in, lifelong learning;
- develop an ability to understand professional, ethical or social responsibilities;
- develop an appropriate mastery of the knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of their disciplines;
- identify, analyze and solve technical and creative problems.
