What is Construction Management? | Construction Management Program
At Stautzenberger College, we are always adding new programs to our school! One of newest programs is Construction Management. But what is Construction Management? And what can you do with a degree in it? Let’s break down the basics of Construction Management:
A construction manager is in charge of planning, directing, budgeting and supervising construction projects from beginning to end. As a construction manager, excellent communications skills are a must. You’ll have to explain the different projects, contracts and work progress to the other professionals you’ll be working with.
A Day in a Life
Construction managers can work on different types of projects. Buildings that need work can range from schools, hospitals, residential or commercial. Construction managers can also work with roads and bridges. Construction managers can be responsible for more than one job at a time. For that reason, time management and organizational skills are crucial.
Typically, a construction manager works from an out-of-field office at the construction site. While being at the construction site, the construction managers are able to supervise and make decisions on the construction activities for the project.
Demand for construction mangers is expected to grow by 15-21% through 2022 with 154,600 projected job openings 2012-2022.*
At Stautzenberger College, we understand that every student has different needs. We offer flexible class schedules so students are able to make time for school. This class can be completed online.
