Program Learning Outcomes

  • Planning, Organizing, Directing, and Controlling: Students will learn planning, organizing, directing and controlling skills to ethically apply concepts that allow construction projects to be brought in safely on time, using scheduling concepts, within budget, by applying learned estimating skills, and to the owner/client’s desired quality standard. These will be done while identifying and managing the inherent project and industry risks to keep the project and all entities involved free of legal issues via among other things a solid understanding of contracts and how they apply throughout the process.
  • Collaboration, Communication, Relationship Building, and Leadership: Students will learn leadership skills and participate in multi-disciplinary teams. They will be part of presentation teams and learn to formulate business plans. Emphasis will be placed on relationship building and team building as well as all forms of effective communication and the thorough/comprehensive documentation necessary to succeed in the construction industry and manage risk.
  • Delivery Methods and the Design Process: Students will learn various design principles, including sustainable and life-cycle concepts for both vertical and horizontal construction. They will apply layout principles and create basic designs. An understanding of building codes will be applied and all in the context of planning and delivering a project from program review to schematic design and design development to the final construction design documents.
  • Materials, Methods, Terminologies, and Applications: Students will be exposed to how various computer applications are used within the industry but with emphasis on the broader concepts and not promotion of specific software programs. The most common materials, methods, and terminologies will be learned along with equipment uses and selection. Students will learn basic engineering principles and how they apply to these materials and methods.
