Welcome from the Dean

Dean ColeWelcome to the College of Architecture and Construction Management.

Architecture and Construction Management - two complementary, collaborative disciplines that seek to provide a nurturing, meaningful, sustainable, safe and beautiful built environment.

Our college is young, but it inherits and builds upon the timeless integration and synergy of architecture, art, humanities, engineering and construction - and the realization of an architectural vision through efficient, quality and environmentally responsible construction and construction management.

The College of Architecture and Construction Management is home to two fully accredited programs - Architecture and Construction Management - offering degrees at the undergraduate and graduate level, with several areas of concentration and speciality.

Our programs offer and encourage study abroad opportunities and seek a level of scholarship and environmental stewardship as we develop leaders in the design and construction industry. We are deeply committed to community engagement, outreach, and take pride in our long-standing relationships with industry.

Our graduates find meaningful and fulfilling jobs through a great educational experience, student and faculty collaborations, national competitions, beautiful facilities, and an outstanding and supportive faculty and staff.

Dynamic, exciting and meaningful are words I use to describe the education in the KSU College of Architecture and Construction Management. I hope you will visit us and I think you will agree.
