COSC is one of the largest and most recognized programs of construction higher education. The Department offers STEM degrees in all three B.S., M.S. (both thesis and non-thesis tracks), and Ph.D. levels. The undergraduate program in Construction Science has been continuously accredited by the American Council for Construction Education (ACCE) since 1978, and in 2012, the master’s program in Construction Management was the first graduate program accredited by ACCE. In 2021, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) approved the Ph.D. program in construction science. This doctoral program in construction is the first in Texas and offers three concentration areas; i) construction management and safety, ii) smart construction, and iii) sustainable construction to meet the rapid changes and demands of the construction industry and academia. The Department has (1) a student population composed of 1,400 students at the undergraduate level, 150 students at the graduate level (including Master’s and Ph.D. programs); (2) 60 faculty and 5 staff members; (3) the support of a Construction Industry Advisory Council (CIAC), composed of 250+ firms from various AEC/FM domains; and (4) eight endowed professorships. Each year, the Department awards more than $500,000 in scholarships through the support of our partners and conducts the largest department-level career fair at TAMU. The Department is housed in Francis Hall, a newly renovated $10M, state-of-the-art 35,000 SF historic building located in the heart of the campus, which is the only stand-alone building for construction education in Texas.
