Construction Technology and Management

The construction industry is the largest employer in Canada.

In this program, you will learn how to plan, coordinate, and control a construction project all the way through. As part of the management team, you’ll use your knowledge of materials and costs, drawings and specifications, and the construction process to develop accurate estimates and schedules. You’ll also maintain quality, safety, and productivity by conducting on-site inspections.

This two-year program will give you an understanding of the general construction industry. You’ll also get on-the-job training to put that theory into action, so when you graduate, you’ll be ready to start your career in an administrative or middle management level.

Once you’ve got two years of appropriate work experience, you can apply for registration with the Association of Certified Engineering Technicians and Technologists of Prince Edward Island; a move that could lead to your Gold Seal Certification as a construction superintendent, estimator, and project manager.

This is a US Federal Aid Approved program.
