Construction Management Program Accreditation Renewed
The McWhorter School of Building Science’s Construction Management Program has been accredited for six more years. The American Council for Construction Education notified the McWhorter School of Building Science of the renewal of accreditation of its Construction Management Program from July 2014 through July 2020. One the oldest and largest construction management education programs in the United States, the McWhorter School of Building Science is the only accredited four-year construction management program the State of Alabama.
“Obtaining re-accreditation by the American Council for Construction Education is significantly important for the school,” says Richard Burt, Head of the McWhorter School of Building Science. “It is a unique opportunity to have our program reviewed by both academic and industry peers. The feedback we received from our visiting team allows us to make improvements and continue the practices that were acknowledged as making our program stronger.”
The American Council of Construction Education’s mission is to be “the leading global advocate of quality construction education.” ACCE accreditation helps students identify construction education programs that have met stringent industry standards of quality and content and assures potential employers that students from an ACCE-accredited program will be of high caliber. ACCE-accredited construction management programs, such as the McWhorter School of Building Science’s, maintain close ties with industry and construction professionals to stay up-to-date with emerging technologies and trends in the construction industry.
