A.S. in Construction Management
Construction Management uses the industry’s best practices to oversee, manage and control the scope, schedule, budget, quality, safety and risk during all stages of a construction project lifecycle (planning, design, pre-construction, construction and closeout). Successful completion of construction management courses prepares students for entry-level construction management opportunities, either in leadership or in one of many support specialist postilions such as assistant construction manager, quality control manager, construction coordinator, contract administrator, construction inspector or safety inspector. For students who already have prior construction industry experience, this program may prepare them to assume even higher level positions. Depending on experience, students may be qualified for employment in higher level positions such as construction manager, project manager, superintendent and/or crew-supervisor.
