A graduate program in the The University of Texas at El Paso College of Engineering is ranked No. 5 in the country by Intelligent.com, an online publication that touts a lifelong commitment to continuous improvement through learning.
The University of Texas at El Paso’s Master of Science in Construction Management in the Department of Civil Engineering was featured as the No. 5-ranked program in the publication’s Top 35 Best Master’s in Construction Management listing, which was released in May 2022. UTEP’s program — one of 70 master’s degree offerings that bolster career value for alums — was recognized for its rigor and flexibility in tailoring to the needs of students, quality of faculty and curriculum, student resource accessibility, tuition rates, return on investment potentiality, and active student engagement.
The designation represents a significant hike in the construction management program’s ascension among the higher education landscape. It was ranked No. 24 in the Intelligent.com rankings last year.
“We are excited to see the continuous growth of our online Construction Management program,” said Adeeba Raheem, Ph.D., assistant professor in the program. “This recognition at the national level is humbling and reflects our commitment to providing high-quality online education and elevating the student experiences by pushing the traditional boundaries.”
The 2022 Intelligent.com rankings are calculated through a unique scoring system which includes student engagement, potential return on investment, and third-party evaluations.
“It is very rewarding to see students graduate from this program and easily get such great jobs,” said Austin Marshall, J.D., Construction Management Program director.
