Polytechnic women build their own futures in construction management

Building Indiana“Building Indiana,” a magazine dedicated to economic development, recently spotlighted several women in the state’s construction industry. Three of them have ties to the Polytechnic Institute.

Patricia Morgan is the industry and outreach manager and a continuing lecturer in the Polytechnic’s School of Construction Management Technology. She received her bachelor’s degree in building construction management from Purdue and has managed construction projects in major cities across the country. She is co-owner of a construction company headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia.

Megan Rush received her bachelor’s of science degree in building construction management. As a project engineer at an oil refinery in Indianapolis, she is involved in just about every facet of the business, including budget management and supply chain administration.

After graduating from the School of Construction Management Technology, Hillary Scott began her career as a project engineer in Kansas City, Missouri. She has since relocated to Indianapolis, where she manages multi-million dollar budgets during the preconstruction phases of buildings.
