The Building Construction Management Learning Community will help you “build” a strong foundation in your college career. The focus will be on your academic success while introducing you to the construction industry, expanding optional career paths and increasing your circle of friends. Members of this group will have unique opportunities to network with industry, learn from other students and meet with faculty. From the first day in the BCM program, we will work with you to ensure your success in our program, at Purdue and in the world of construction.

The learning community will be joining BCMentors, our student to student mentoring group, and you will begin exploring all the construction industry has to offer through your course work, through site visits to construction projects and through your network of friends and faculty.
