Construction Management, A.A.S.

Requirements

Students may earn an Associate in Applied Science degree. The Clyde Institute of Construction Management Program has been designed to provide students a strong foundation in Construction Management that prepares them for jobs in construction site supervision and/or for advancement on to a BS degree in Construction Management. The program provides courses in building construction, construction management and construction science that apply to all segments of the construction industry with an emphasis on heavy civil and commercial construction. Students will learn about construction materials and methods through the use of readings, 3-D models, hands-on laboratory exercises, and site visits. Construction management courses in estimating and scheduling are also provided along with a strong background in mathematics, computer technology, business and other general education subjects. A supervisory course is also required so students can learn to manage workers at construction sites.
