About the Program

What you can’t see behind a building’s walls is what makes it hum. From power to pipes, and from ventilation to lighting, if these systems don’t work, the building doesn’t either. When you major in electrical and mechanical construction management at Purdue, you will be part of a program where you can start a construction career focused on healthcare, power, refineries or pharmaceuticals. If you need to bring liquids, gases or electricity into or out of a building, you’ll need to know the ins and outs of electrical and mechanical construction management.
