Student Success Story
"The MSCM program at Wentworth has helped me to build advanced knowledge in the construction field and has also allowed me to gain valuable industry connections with both my fellow classmates and instructors."
Michael Seidenberg, MSCM Class of 2013
"I am enjoying my MSCM online class. The cohort has a good mix of experience and everyone is bringing great things to the table. Our discussions thus far have been very good and I enjoy reading and commenting on every one of them."
Sean Flanigan, MSCM Spring 2014
Master of Science
Construction Management Online
The online Master of Science in Construction Management (MSCM) at Wentworth Institute of Technology is designed to educate students in fundamental post-graduate management principles. Students will gain a strong understanding of construction and business management concepts, from pre-design through construction closeout.
The MSCM program is designed for working professionals, with an online format (as well as an on-campus option) that allows students to complete the degree in less than two years while still being able to work full-time and fulfill their personal responsibilities.
Graduates of the MSCM program will be prepared to assume leadership positions across the construction industry. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, construction managers' median annual salary in Massachusetts was approximately $101,250 in 2012, and nationally the occupation is projected to grow at a faster than average rate of 16% through 2020.
Online course discussion groups are a key component of the curriculum, allowing students to regularly interact with and learn from both their instructors and fellow classmates. MSCM instructors are proven leaders in the field and many of them work full-time in the construction industry. Our MSCM students also work in construction and related industries, which facilitates peer to peer learning.
