Description
Graduates of Construction Technology will be part of a team responsible for the coordination and implementation of construction projects. Some of the duties performed would include cost estimating, project management, and project scheduling. This specialization combines these courses with knowledge of core technical courses such as elementary structures, soils, concrete, and surveying; and integrates them with their applications in the construction of buildings, roads and other projects.
(Housed in the Engineering Technologies Department)
