The Associate of Applied Science in Construction Management (AASCM) prepares students to work as entry-level managers in the construction industry. Managers help control construction costs and schedules; administer contracts; determine construction means and methods; and manage people, material, and equipment while ensuring compliance with design criteria and safety standards.
The Associate in Applied Science in Construction Management is nationally accredited by the American Council for Construction Education.
The AASCM meets the requirements for the first two years of the Bachelor of Science (BS) in Construction Management.
