  • Abstract:

    Construction management has been in existence for many years. The graduate construction management programmes offered by departments of civil engineering in the USA are reviewed. The courses offered in such programmes are categorized and examined in twelve groups. The findings indicate that the most popular subjects are those related to laws, contracts and specifications; planning and scheduling; and operations research methods. Also, it was found that programmes differed a great deal from each other in terms of the concentration of and emphasis on the subjects treated. It is concluded that a clearer conception of the discipline is necessary both by educators and the industry for higher quality and more uniform graduate programmes in construction management.
