Requirements for admission to the program include: 

  • a bachelor’s degree in construction or a construction-related field from an accredited institution; 

  • a grade point average of 3.0 or higher; 

  • and demonstrated experience in the discipline as evidenced by a resumé. 

Those with a non-construction-related degree may be considered for admission to the program upon completing one of the three following conditions: 

  • Prerequisite coursework in the following content areas: Environmental Systems-HVAC, Electrical and Plumbing, Advanced Construction Estimating, Management of Construction, and Legal Aspects of Construction, with a grade of “B” or better. Applicants who are denied admission due to deficiencies in these prerequisites will be advised that the courses can be taken at UW-Stout as a special non-degree student but this will not guarantee admission into the graduate program. The undergraduate deficiency courses can also be taken at any regionally accredited degree granting institution.

  • Evidence of equivalent courses/professional knowledge; or 

  • Proof of an American Institute of Constructors Certification at the Associate Constructor (Level 1) or the Certified Constructor (Level 2).
