Graduate Certificate in Integrated Project Delivery (GCIPD)

Construction-eng-2.jpgMany stakeholders in the construction industry recognize the inefficiency of design-bid-build project delivery. Numerous and costly changes, contract disputes, and schedule delays render traditional general contracting a less attractive option  than in the past. Integrated project delivery (IPD) methods, especially design-build, are growing in popularity precisely because they successfully address these problems.

The construction industry values professionals with some educational background in IPD methods. Additionally, there are professionals who would like to learn IPD concepts without completing a lengthy graduate degree program. This new graduate certificate caters to the needs of these two groups.



Admission to the GCIPD program requires:

  1. An earned bachelor degree in one of the following or a closely related discipline: engineering, architecture, construction management, business management, accounting;
  2. Minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.00;
  3. Demonstration of high potential for success based on the following:
  • Application for Graduate Admission;
  • Official transcripts of all college work; and
  • Professional resume
