The Construction Management Faculty is doing their best by providing to students the opportunity to apply to many internships through their job fairs and their annual Construction Management Reno Competition were we are all encourage to participate and get the opportunity to meet with construction companies nationwide.

So far my experience is great. I had one specific professor that in my opinion is the best ever. This professor made a very difficult and boring class one of the most fun and entertained class ever. If I can grade his performance, I will give him an A plus.

CSU east bay Construction Management faculty is a fairly new program at this university that it is improving and growing in an amazing rate. The thing that makes this school unique is the attention that you receive from your instructors that is more personalized since we are not that many as compared to other programs. This is one of the main things that I like the best. The professors are great, knowledgeable, easy to get in contact with, and most important, they are all passionate about construction.
