In the Construction Technology and Management program, you will learn how to plan, coordinate, and manage construction projects from inception to completion. Learn about building materials, drawings and specifications, and the construction process. Develop practical skills by preparing 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. Gain real-life experience in the construction industry and build your network while you complete your on-job training. By the time 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 Island Technology Professionals (ITP), which can lead to certification as a Construction Technician. The Canadian Construction Association has a Gold Seal certification program for superintendents, estimators, and project managers for more experienced graduates.
The Construction Technology and Management program is a TAC (Technology Accreditation Canada) nationally accredited program at the technician level. National program accreditation involves an independent team of certified professionals performing an extensive audit, which provides graduates and employers confidence the program meets the educational standards of Canada’s engineering technology and applied science profession.
Graduating from a nationally accredited program creates an expedited path to becoming a certified professional with provincial certifying bodies in Canada.
