With new technology comes new materials, new products, and new implementation techniques. Construction Management is an ideal major if you enjoy a creative challenge and like to see the results of your work. Graduates of this program have found work as supervisors and project managers with construction companies like Dubois & King or PC Construction. Other career paths include equipment sales, heavy machine operators, or consulting work. 

This program is designed to serve both recent high school graduates with limited experience in the construction field and adults already employed in the building industry who want to prepare themselves for more advanced roles.

If you want to expand your career options, consider obtaining a 4-year degree in Construction Management.

  • Communicate construction materials and methods using graphical symbols, drafting practice, and CAD
  • Effectively communicate technical instructions and building details using written and spoken English
  • Use computers for computation, research, documentation, and communication
  • Identify building components and materials
  • Demonstrate and model industry-accepted (OSHA) safety practices

  • Create and administer construction schedules
  • Operate a total station to establish points, elevations, survey distances, building, and road layout
  • Write a business plan
  • Complete quantity takeoffs in residential and commercial construction

The student in this program is required to have safety glasses; work boots; speed or combo square; chalk line; tool belt; tape measure; utility knife; and pencils.
