The 2020 Student Experience

By UM News
We are true believers that universities and its programs – at their very best – are innovators and modern pioneers. They take risks that benefit the bottom line and student success. These are all things that should be at the forefront of education for our talent. 
 
“The best part of this program is the practicality and real-world application of what we’re learning and doing,” said Sebastian Militello, a current student. “I’m not learning theory – I’m learning reality.”
 
Militello went on to say that the MCM curriculum encourages and provides its students – who consistently go on to proactively shape and improve our industry – with the tools to make meaningful contributions to the environment that surrounds them.
 
The faculty are “outstanding at embracing all the students and providing an inviting atmosphere and they are available to us at all times,” said current student Claudia Steputat. The students are exposed to a variety of construction management opportunities, and Steputat said she receives “further insight, understanding, and knowledge by visiting various construction job sites,” and is “exposed to top companies in the field with hands-on training.” 
 
By providing students the skills necessary to become the leaders of the 21st Century workforce, and creating a new class of Master Builders, the Master of Construction Management Program is poised to continue to grow well into the future, contribute to the sustainability of our industry and spur more talented professionals to our region to contribute within companies, on a wide-range of meaningful projects and across various industries both domestically and internationally.
