Support Construction Management

Construction Management students are among the most aggressively recruited on campus, with nearly 100% finding full-time employment prior to graduation.
Employers and industry agree – Cal Poly Construction Management graduates are better prepared for the workforce and for leadership positions in the field because of their hands-on experiences while in college, and due to their ability to work collaboratively in teams and across disciplines.


Scholarship support is a critical part of student success. Your donation not only provides financial support to the recipients - it can make the difference between whether a student joins an ASC competition team or an academic club.

Students in Need

Life happens, and it’s never on time. The computer breaks right before the final report is due, or an emergency back home requires an immediate trip to see family. Maybe incoming dollars don’t match up to the bills, or a student is short on materials for a final project. Help to ensure that a student with an emergency has the support they need to meet the challenge.

Hands-on Courses and Labs

Courses and labs are where our students gain valuable learn by doing experience. Your support helps keep these courses updated and industry-specific, and keeps the labs state of the art allowing us to stay on track with new innovations and trends in technologies.
