Construction management is an ideal major if you enjoy a creative challenge and like to see the results of your work. With new technology comes new materials, new products, and new implementation techniques.
This program is designed to serve both recent high school graduates with limited experience in the construction field and adults already employed in the building industry who want to prepare themselves for project management and supervisory roles.
The first year of the program focuses on the skills entailed in the practice of building construction. In addition to the materials and methods of residential and light commercial construction, students study drafting; print reading; electrical and mechanical systems; math; and physics.
In the second year of the program, students acquire the management skills needed for supervisory positions in the building industry. Second-year students take courses in construction project management; estimating; field engineering and surveying; small business management and business law; and basic structural engineering and safety.
Graduates of the program qualify for a range of positions in the construction field: small business owners, building materials representatives, construction supervisors, estimators, and entrepreneurs. Some students may decide to further their education in management, architectural, or civil engineering. Graduates who expect to run their own construction companies are encouraged to explore continuing their educational path in Vermont Tech’s bachelor’s degree program.
