About the Program

If you are looking for a way to move your construction, architecture, or engineering career forward or are considering an undergraduate or graduate degree but are unable to make the full commitment at this time, consider a certificate program from Drexel’s Construction Management program.

The undergraduate certificate in the Fundamentals of Construction Management is designed to fill the training needs of industry leaders.

Developed at the request of two contractors' associations—the General Building Contractors Association and the Contractors Association of Eastern Pennsylvania—this certificate is suitable for those who have undergraduate degrees in other fields but wish to work in the construction industry along with those who are already employed in the industry but seek career advancement or updated training.
