The Department of Construction Science (COSC) is one of the largest and highly recognized programs of construction higher education in the world. Currently, the Department has: (1) a student population composed of 1,000 students at the Bachelor’s level, 60 students at the Master’s level, and 20 students at the doctoral; (2) 42 faculty and 5 staff members; (3) the support of a Construction Industry Advisory Council (CIAC), composed of approximately 220 construction and construction-related companies; and (4) eight endowed professorships. COSC’s undergraduate program has been continuously accredited by the American Council for Construction Education (ACCE) since 1978, and in 2012, the master’s program in Construction Management was the first graduate program accredited by ACCE. Both programs are STEM coded. Each year, the Department awards more than $500,000 in scholarships through the support of our partners, and conducts the largest department-level career fair at TAMU, with approximately 175 companies participating in a career fair each semester. The Department is housed in Francis Hall, a newly-renovated, state-of-the-art 35,000 SF historic building located in the heart of the campus, being the only stand-alone building for construction education in the State of Texas.
