Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Undergraduate & Graduate Programs

About the Program

Not all construction work is new construction. As buildings age, as new products and techniques are adopted, and as disasters occur, a specific set of skills is needed for safely taking down structures or building them back up. When you major in demolition and restoration management in the built environment at Purdue University you will examine the common lifecycles of structures and learn new skills that will be critical after natural or man-made disasters.
