The bachelor of science program in construction management is a direct ladder from the associate program in building technology. Additional courses focus on higher level theory, critical thinking, and problem-solving-based concepts, which further prepare you for employment as a construction manager and will increase the opportunity to advance your career. As a construction manager you will confer with owners, contractors or design professionals to discuss and resolve issues on the job site. You will also plan, schedule and coordinate activities to meet deadlines, while preparing budget estimates, progress reports and daily activity logs. 

Students who graduate with a degree in construction management have career opportunities such as field engineer, planner, site supervisor, scheduler, cost estimator, assistant project manager, safety coordinator, logistics manager, environmental controller, building inspector and general contractor.
