Construction managers must be familiar with all aspects of the building process, but they also need to be strong leaders.

During the practicum, students have the opportunity to perform various construction management functions, gain insight into the challenges of managing a site, and enhance critical thinking, problem solving and communication skills.
This program can be completed in the day or evening, on a full-time or part-time basis. A few courses may not be offered in the evening every semester so students are advised to plan their schedule carefully to avoid any delay in graduation.
