Hands-on, industry-relevant skills
The BTech-CM program combines practical skills with the technical training and theoretical knowledge you will need to successfully manage a construction project. When you graduate, you will be ready to bridge the gap from entry-level technologist to a leadership and management role in the growing heavy-industrial, commercial, engineering and construction industries.
Coursework will teach you the ins and outs of:
- contract law
- cost control
- project management
You can expect to perform risk management, construction estimates, and scheduling activities for actual projects.
This program has been designed to allow you to meet degree requirements while still maintaining a work-life balance through traditional classroom and eLearning options. What is eLearning?
Face-to-face courses are 15 weeks in length, (8 weeks during spring term). eLearning courses are 10 weeks long.
If you work full-time, you can take this program on a part-time basis. It is possible to take 1 or 2 classes per semester based on your workload. For face-to-face courses, lectures and labs will run 2 to 3 hours long in the evenings unless the course is offered online.

Students who are conditionally accepted to the BTech-CM program pending successful completion of bridging courses may be eligible to take some courses from the BTech-CM simultaneously through Open Studies.
