Build your career in the growing construction industry by mastering core concepts in engineering, management, and architecture with a top-ranking Construction Engineering and Management offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Michigan.

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.
