About the Program
Associate in Applied Science
The A.A.S. program prepares students for careers as construction managers, building inspectors, cost estimators, and material supply specialists. Construction managers direct building projects to satisfy contract specifications and schedules. Projects include residential and commercial buildings, light industrial construction, bridges, highways and utilities. They coordinate the activities of skilled workers, supervisors, suppliers and subcontractors. They order tools and materials, inspect projects, prepare estimates, schedule projects, and prepare reports on materials used, cost and progress. Construction inspectors and building officials examine construction to ensure that standards are met. They take measurements, look for visible defects and perform tests. They may use testing equipment, keep records, utilize third party test results, and write reports. Cost estimators calculate the cost of labor and materials needed to perform services or produce goods. This information is used in making bids for contracts or determining the profitability of a construction project.
The certificate is intended for students desiring to focus on a career in construction management or supervision, and who may already have work experience in the construction field. Courses include the core courses from the A.A.S. degree program that are most closely linked to immediate employment opportunities. Job opportunities include estimating, scheduling, procurement, and field supervision. Other CMT courses may be substituted upon consultation with program advisor.
