Plan of Study

MS in Construction Management courses are 100% online and in a synchronous virtual environment where you will receive engaging and relevant instructor-led training, collaboration with your peers and gain real-world skills while in a comfortable, ready-to-learn atmosphere. Our Live Classrooms are strategically designed to ensure that you master core concepts with in-person instruction and interactions. The courses are typically every Tuesday and/or Thursday from 7:00 PM - 9:50 PM (EST). This non-thesis degree requires 33 credit hours. Courses are offered in a two-year cycle, with start dates available at the beginning of each Fall semester.

As you complete your first full semester, we'll work with you to establish your individual Plan of Study (POS). All students are required to have an approved Plan of Study in order to graduate from Purdue.

The Plan of Study serves as a contract between you, your advisory committee, and Purdue University’s Graduate School. Your POS is a blueprint for successful completion of your degree requirements. The plan must be approved adhering to department and Graduate School policies. We strongly encourage students to have an approved Plan of Study on file by the end of their first semester.

Refer to the table below and the POS Overview for assistance on what courses to take and when they’re offered. For a detailed description of each course please visit the Course Offerings page under the Student Resources tab.
