Electrical Construction Management

Electrical Construction Management degree

The electrical construction management concentration is an optional concentration offered as part of the building construction management degree program. The concentration will be reflected on your official academic transcript.


The goal of the electrical construction management (ECLM) concentration program is to provide a higher level of education for those building construction management (BCM) students who are interested in the field of electrical construction.

Coursework will provide students the necessary skills required for entry-level positions in the electrical construction industries. Topics include:

  • estimating
  • scheduling
  • project management
  • design


Upon completion of the following plan of study, and in conjunction with the core requirements of the BCM program, the student will receive the "Electrical Construction Management" designation on their transcript. Students who choose to pursue the ECLM will complete the core required course of BCM 216 Electrical Construction (2 cr.), and complete an additional nine (9) credit hours of courses which are specific to the electrical construction industry.

While not required, most students who choose the electrical construction concentration also complete the mechanical construction concentration.

Students in this concentration may be interested in joining the Purdue chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association.
