Program Overview

In the Construction Technology Management program, you will learn how to plan, coordinate, and manage construction projects from inception to completion. You will learn about building materials, drawings and specifications, and the construction process. You will have the opportunity to prepare estimates of the cost of materials, labour, site overhead, and start-up costs for residential construction projects.

You will also visit construction sites and take courses in construction law and contract documents, drafting fundamentals, and construction surveying. You will acquire an understanding of the construction industry and on the job training will put that understanding into action, so that when you graduate, you will be ready to start your career at an administrative or middle management level.

Graduates with two years of appropriate work experience can apply for registration with the Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists of Prince Edward Island, which can lead to a Gold Seal Certification as a construction superintendent, estimator, and project manager.
