Bachelor of Science in Construction Management

We offer a 2+2 Construction Management baccalaureate program for graduates from the Vermont Tech Architectural & Building Engineering, Civil & Environmental Engineering, and Construction 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, 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:
  • 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
  • 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
  • Evaluate multiple choices in the means and methods of construction for fiscal decision-making and planning
The minimum number of credits required for a degree is 122.
