Construction Management Industries and Employers

Local and National Firms Seek Out Florida Tech Graduates

Florida Tech’s construction management curriculum continuously challenges students to participate in real-world experiences that will make them attractive to industry employers. As a result, entry-level graduates join the workforce primed and ready to go to work with minimum training on the job, saving the hiring company time and money. 

More than 80 percent of College of Engineering & Computing seniors receive job offers prior to graduation. Florida Tech’s construction management seniors have experienced close to 100% placement in the workforce, except those who choose to enter graduate school. No matter what path students choose, exciting career options await when they are ready to begin their career. 

To support this high percentage of graduate placement, Florida Tech annually conducts two widely attended and popular career fairs in the Fall and Spring. Highly respected, local and Fortune 500 companies come to the university year after year to attract graduates. These have included employers such as:

Diverse Career Options

A degree in construction management from Florida Tech is first and foremost a degree in management.

Approximately 60% of the skills taught in our program are applicable to the management of any type of business, within or outside the construction industry. This means a student who holds a Florida Tech degree in construction management, who later decides to enter a different industry, has an excellent skill set to attract any employer seeking a business manager. This might be healthcare, education, manufacturing or any other enterprise where planning, budgeting, estimating and operations control are essential to success. 

Finally, the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that jobs in construction will continue to increase through 2031, so there’s no better time to begin a career in this dynamic, diverse industry at Florida Tech.
