Best Construction Management colleges in the U.S. 2022

A construction manager reports on work progress, supervises construction personnel, negotiates cost estimates and budgets, and is on call 24-hours a day to deal with delays such as bad weather or other emergencies. As of 2012, a construction manager could earn anywhere from $49,000 to over $140,000 depending on their degree and years of experience. Salaried construction managers can also earn bonuses and overtime pay, and more than 60 percent of construction managers are self-employed.

Construction management blends business knowledge with basic construction and engineering instruction. Drafting, design, construction materials, surveying, quality management, safety, engineering fundamentals, estimating, and business management are typical course topics.

Time management is a vital skill for construction managers. Construction managers work with clients, engineers, architects, and suppliers to build residential, commercial, and industrial structures, roads, bridges, wastewater treatment plants, schools, and hospitals. They prepare contracts, obtain building permits, and make sure that projects meet applicable codes, standards, and budgets. New construction managers are generally hired as assistants to experienced managers before beginning independent work. Although certification isn?t mandatory, it?s highly recommended because it shows the manager has up-to-date knowledge and experience. The Construction Management Association of America and the American Institute of Constructors are two groups that award designations to qualified candidates.
