The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) marketable skills initiative is part of the state’s 60x30TX plan and was designed to help students articulate their skills to employers.  Marketable skills are those skills valued by employers and/or graduate programs that can be applied in a variety of work or education settings and may include interpersonal, cognitive, and applied skill areas.

The BS in Construction Management is designed to provide graduates with the following marketable skills:

  • Complete a project on time, within budget, and of required quality.
  • Interpret construction documents for materials and quantities.
  • Demonstrate leadership, teamwork, and effective communication skills.
  • Recognize professional, ethical, and social responsibilities, and diversity.
  • Administer safety awareness and regulatory compliance.
  • Acquire knowledge through applied industry experiences, services, and life-long learning.
