The following article by Monique Clement was posted in its entirety on the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering Full Circle magazine. 

Selecting the lowest bidder isn’t always going to be the best option when it comes to construction, though it was how business was run for decades. Considering the experience, reputation and safety records of potential builders — the methodology of alternative delivery — can lead to a better end product and satisfaction.

Understanding the ins and outs of alternative delivery and other construction management practices are necessary to staying relevant in today’s construction industry, and among the major tenets stressed in construction management.

Arizona State University’s online master’s program in construction management helps bring industry professionals up to speed on the principles needed to efficiently and effectively build tomorrow’s infrastructure today.

“In recent years, the construction industry has been observing a major paradigm shift to adopt new and emerging technologies that drastically improve performance,” says Steven Ayer, assistant professor in the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment, one of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at ASU.

The School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment offers an online Master of Science in construction management through its Del E. Webb School of Construction for individuals seeking opportunity in upper management. The construction management program has more than 50 years of history at ASU, with established ties to industry, alumni, internship opportunities and professional organizations to help students get ahead.
