Construction Management involves managing, estimating, and scheduling of residential, industrial, commercial and institutional construction projects. Talented managers know how to avoid costly delays, control a project’s scope and maximize resources and existing budgets.

The one-year, two term Construction Management Ontario College Graduate Certificate program will provide students with practical education by combining project management skills in construction that emphasize estimating, scheduling, procurement and cost control with best practices in construction safety, quality management, legal documentation and contracts.

Graduates will also gain effective communication skills to work with all levels of personnel in the construction industry. These skills will help prepare them for more responsible jobs in the construction sector.
