With a degree in construction management and critical infrastructure, you'll bring a unique skill set and understanding to your role in the construction industry. You'll graduate prepared to manage a variety of construction projects, from the field or home office. At the same time, your enhanced IT skills in cybersecurity make you uniquely qualified to handle the nation's critical infrastructure.
