Design and Construction Integration, BS

Increased project complexity and owner’s expectations, collaborative delivery methods and ever changing technology in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry has stressed the need for more collaboration between different stakeholders. The Design and Construction Integration Major focuses on the management of the design and construction process through collaboration of different parties. Graduates of the major are expected to act as liaison between different construction stakeholders, such as designers, contractors and owners. The major is conceptualized to have a core in construction management and supporting courses that provide students with a fundamental understanding of the design process (from within and outside the Purdue Polytechnic Institute).

Critical Course

The ♦ course is considered critical.

In alignment with the Degree Map Guidance for Indiana’s Public Colleges and Universities, published by the Commission for Higher Education (pursuant to HEA 1348-2013), a Critical Course is identified as “one that a student must be able to pass to persist and succeed in a particular major.  Students who want to be nurses, for example, should know that they are expected to be proficient in courses like biology in order to be successful.  These would be identified by the institutions for each degree program”. 


The student is ultimately responsible for knowing and completing all degree requirements.
