Historic Preservation is a track intended to equip practitioners with analytical, planning, and design skills that foster stewardship of the built environment.  Participants will learn how to recognize and identify what character-defining features and opportunities are important considerations in the reuse of the built environment and how to manage the processes that ensure the attainment of sustainability goals of contemporary society.  Click HERE or more information.

Project Delivery is a track that emphasizes project-based learning and just in time decision-making.  It is an alternative to traditional construction management programs.  Students will work closely with industry on scenarios that require dynamic and integrated delivery methods.  Risk management, leadership, collaboration and information sharing will be the emphasis.  This track allows students to self-select their emphasis within integrated project delivery.  Click HERE for more information

These tracks have a cross cutting curriculum that allows students to share knowledge and critique one another’s work.  Each track in the MSAS has associated topics that students may focus on, orient elective courses toward and emphasize in their internship and final project. In addition, students are required to take credits outside of the college to build knowledge in an area related to their studies (i.e. engineering course for technology, history for preservation, and/or business for project delivery).  Incoming students will consult with the program director of the respective track who will oversee the student’s progress through the track.
