Civil Technology: Construction Management Concentration A.A.S.

Important Notice

The Civil Technology program is being discontinued and is not accepting applications for the 2018-2019 academic year.  Currently enrolled students will have access to courses and resources until they graduate in May 2019. 

Program Overview

Beginning in the 2018-2019 academic year, the Civil Technology: Construction Management Concentration program will no longer be accepting new students. Current Thompson School students in this program will continue to have access to the same high-quality education and resources until they graduate in 2019.

In the Construction Management concentration, students prepare for careers in land development, construction contracting and management, and land-use planning. Students learn not only how to build well but how to build wisely.  They study construction and its related technologies, dealing with material selection and design, and design of foundation and drainage systems. They also examine environmental and land development issues by studying residential and commercial septic,waste disposal, and municipal environmental systems, recycling, and effective energy management. Some graduates elect to continue their education in Bachelor of Science programs in civil engineering or community development.

Graduates of the construction management concentration find employment in a variety of building industry-related positions.

Career Opportunities

Construction supervisor, project manager, cost estimator, public-works employee, contractor, code-enforcement officer, construction-material tester, land-development planning employee, site evaluator for building components, construction product manufacturer, product representative, or DOT engineering technician.
