Construction management represents an industry that organizes or brings together numerous independent businesses and trades to create the build environment. The constructor works closely with owners, engineers, architects and sub-contractors, and building officials before, during and after the construction process to assure successful completion of a project. Our program provides education in technical aspects, such as graphics, equipment, materials, planning and estimating techniques; extensive computer applications exposure; and, the fundamentals of business management. Upon completion of the plan of study, all students will have also earned a Minor in Business.
Construction careers are broadly diversified. Graduates of this program find employment in a variety of sectors in the construction industry, including residential, commercial, and industrial, as well as infrastructure and heavy construction. Typical careers include supervising construction projects, estimating, scheduling, project control and project management.
