Auburn University, located in Auburn, Alabama, recently announced that it is now offering a doctorate degree in building construction. This reportedly makes the university one of only a handful of places to offer such a program nationwide.

The school describes the program as “a research-based degree that will emphasize emerging and important areas of building construction.”

Students will take an average of three years to complete the program, which requires 62 semester hours of graduate work beyond a bachelor’s degree.

A description of the degree says that the track “emphasizes original scholarship in key areas such as high-performance buildings, n-D modeling and simulation of building construction processes, sustainability, integrated project delivery, facilities maintenance and management, and innovative construction education approaches.”

In terms of learning outcomes, the university says that by the end of the program students will be able to:

  • Apply knowledge of the construction industry at an appropriate level for doctoral study;
  • Identify research problems, choose appropriate research methods and data analysis techniques to prepare a research proposal related to building construction;
  • Use written, graphical and oral means of dissemination to effectively communicate research findings related to building construction; and
  • Teach construction students by developing a lesson plan, instructional materials and assessments for an undergraduate class.
