(Nevada Today) – The University of Nevada has developed a new Construction Management Minor that will be housed in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering. For over a decade, the Associated General Contractors (AGC) worked with the College of Engineering to create a minor in construction management.
The Construction Management Minor has been developed in collaboration with regional and state construction agencies, alongside the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering Advisory Board and department faculty. New courses are in the process of being developed which will give graduates a competitive edge when they seek careers in the construction industry.
Working with the University Foundation, an endowment was created for this effort. The AGC Board approved both the fundraising drive to fund the endowment by its members and the AGC’s initial contribution of $50,000 toward those efforts. Industry support has created nearly $200,000 in donations toward the endowment.
