The construction industry can be a good field for ex-offenders because many companies do not perform background checks. In addition, graduates with an entrepreneurial spirit have an opportunity to build their own business in this industry.
Students who enroll in construction management degrees can expect to learn the technical and managerial concepts needed to be successful in the field. They may take coursework that covers areas such as structural analysis, scientific problem solving, project management, field inspection, building codes, real estate development and estimating.
