What will I learn?

Safety in the workplace is more crucial than ever. The School of Construction offers a comprehensive sequence of courses leading to a degree in Environmental and Safety Management or a minor in Safety, Health and Environmental Management.

This program is a broad-based program that exposes students to several aspects of environmental and workplace safety.
