Construction Management 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 in Business Technology.

Bachelor of Science in Construction Management We offer a 2+2 construction management baccalaureate program for graduates from the Vermont Tech Architectural and Building Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, and Construction Practice and Management programs. Graduates of other similar programs may request a transcript review during the application process.

A baccalaureate degree in construction management will meaningfully synthesize prior experiences, education, business management skills, construction techniques, resource allocation, asset management, and human resource management. Students entering from AET, CET, and CPM will arrive with a solid understanding of the foundations of engineering, management, and/or design and will leave with the ability to manage the planning and implementation of a construction project as principal or employee of a construction business.

Because of demographics and economics, motivated graduates will enjoy rapid ascent of the management career ladder.

This program is designed to better meet the needs of the construction industry. Rapid technological advances in this field, combined with an aging workforce, have present opportunities for recent college graduates. With additional field experience, graduates will assume positions of superintendent, project manager, estimator, or field engineer in commercial, institutional, industrial, residential, or civil construction.

Specific program objectives, including career and learning outcomes for students include:

Program Goals:

• To prepare students with strong technical and problem-solving backgrounds for management level positions

• To enable students to control or contribute to a profitable construction-related business

• To equip future employees with the skills necessary to adapt to technological and process changes in a rapidly developing field

• To instill resiliency, lifelong learning, and a “no excuses” mentality Learning Outcomes (Upon graduation from the Construction Management program,

students will be able to):

• Create and implement a company safety plan

• Create, estimate, condense, and graphically communicate Gantt, Network Diagram, and Activity on Node project management charts

• Estimate and submit competitive construction bids

• Manage a construction project, including materials and resources, from design phase to close-out Construction Management

• Interpret construction drawings, specifications, and permits for implementation of Best Management Practices

• Properly lay out and site buildings, bridges, and roads from designs

• Manage documentation for payments, inspections, as-built drawings, and progress submittals

• Provide immediate first aid and live saving care (CPR) to other employees
