This program is designed to provide individuals with the knowledge and skills needed to start a career in the construction management field. Classroom and laboratory experiences emphasize commercial, residential and civil related construction.
Students will take classes in the areas of construction materials and methods, print reading, safety, construction specifications, project management and supervision as well as hands-on classes for estimating, scheduling, surveying, material testing and quality control. In addition, students take courses in communications, human relations, technical mathematics, and business use of computers to help provide them with career-advancing skills.
The construction industry has a high demand for individuals with an education in construction management both regionally and nationally. The Construction Management Technology program prepares students for a career in construction as a construction manager, project manager, project engineer, field engineer, job site superintendent, estimator, scheduler, quality control and many other managerial positions whose duties and responsibilities ensure that construction projects are completed on-time, within budget, to the desired quality, and safely.
Green and/or sustainable construction is specifically covered in multiple courses with an emphasis on energy efficient buildings and sustainable building materials.
While students are fully employable upon completion of this program, the Associate in Applied Science degree in Construction Management Technology also provides transfer options to four-year colleges and universities in construction management related fields.
