Construction Managers take the lead on major builds. They make tough decisions and see a construction deal through from the blueprint design and contracts phase to a top quality finished structure on time and on budget. You'll learn construction principles and practices, the basics of building engineering technology, and equipment and management-related skills. Many courses in your first year are common with other technology programs and provide flexibility for credit transfer. Our on-the-job practicum readies you to lead construction teams in multiple settings on projects large and small. Builds happen every day and confident construction managers are in high demand.
The requirements for this diploma program may be achieved within two years of full-time study.
