Accreditation & Industry Certification
We are currently seeking accreditation for the BTech-CM program from the American Council for Construction Education (ACCE).
In Canada, construction management does not have a specific accrediting body. We are, however, seeking accreditation for the program from 2 related Canadian bodies.
- Project Management Institute Global Accreditation Center (PMI-GAC) – the only specialized international accrediting body that assures the quality of project management degree programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels
- Canadian Construction Association (CCA) – the CCA’s Gold Seal program is a national certification program that recognizes construction management excellence based on educational experience and examination
The program is also currently under review by the Canadian Institute of Quantity Surveyors (CIQS). The CIQS is a self-regulating and professional body that sets the highest standards for construction economics in Canada. The BTech-CM program will be the second program in Alberta to be accredited by the CIQS.
