Explore and study of new construction methods, materials and management in order to make construction faster, better and safer.

Faculty members in the Construction Management and Engineering Department are engaged in cutting-edge research projects in construction materials building energy, spacial data analysis and virtual design and construction. This research has been funded by a variety of state, private, and federal agencies including the National Science Foundation, Department of Transportation, Department of Energy and ND Department of Commerce. Many undergraduate and graduate students are supported on funded research projects each year.
