Construction Management is the planning, coordinating, and building of a project from conception to completion. Professor Ibrahim Odeh developed in Fall 2016 a Construction Management Specialization containing four courses which are listed below. After successfully finishing the courses, each registered learner earns a certificate of completion. With Professor Odeh's reputation for bridging theory and practice in the field, around 20 highly accomplished practitioners joined him in presenting practical topics and cases in these courses. This specialization is intended for Construction Industry professionals such as engineers, architects, project managers, contractors & subcontractors, and owners & owner's reps who are looking to advance their careers. There are also many active students at the undergraduate and graduate levels at other national and international institutions registered for these courses.
