Construction Management

The Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Construction Management provides instruction in management skills, construction industry specific technical and occupational subjects, such as construction planning, design, and OSHA 30 safety. This degree helps prepare graduates for a productive career in the construction industry as an owner, foreman, project engineer, manager, project manager, or property manager. Provides knowledge in construction ethics, estimating, and contracts and prepares graduates for the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Associates exam in order to become LEED Certified. This curriculum also provides good preparation for transfer to a four-year bachelor program in Construction and satisfies much of the requirements for the AGEC-A and Associate in Arts Degrees.
