Construction Management AS Degree & Certificate


The Construction Management Program offers both an Associate of Science Degree and a Certificate of Achievement. 

The only difference between the Degree and the Certificate is the completion of the colleges general education requirements. The Degree is 29 program units + 31 general education units (for a total of 60 units) and the Certificate is 29 program units.

The Construction Management program is designed to prepare students with the foundation needed to meet the current technological requirements of the construction workplace. The program has two tracks: one for those interested in transfer to a four-year college or university to major in Construction Engineering or Construction Management; the other option is for those students already employed in the construction industry or who plan to enter the industry after completion of a certificate or associate degree. The certificate and associate degree curriculum provides students with the industry identified skill competencies for entry into the field.

Student Learning Outcome: Students will be able to demonstrate proficiency in the core skills and knowledge required for employment in construction management.
