The scale and scope of this work has expanded to include the approach known as integrated project delivery. This method has increased the responsibility of construction managers to become part of the project delivery team at the outset of the project, and no immediately prior to construction as was once common practice. This increased exposure early in the process requires a management team that has knowledge of design, construction and facility management. Tasks once carried out by other agents working on project have now become part of the role of construction management technicians with knowledge of green building practices, building information modeling, scheduling, and estimating.
The program provides students with a strong foundation of technical and organizational skills that apply to construction projects from conception to completion. Graduates of the CM program are work-ready!
