About Course

Construction Management helps students develop the skills required to take on all the on-site responsibilities of a construction project. Civil Engineering and Construction Management have many things in common, but they are two different fields and require different education and professional experience. The main distinction between them is the fact that Civil Engineering focuses on all the aspects concerning an infrastructure project. This involves planning, budgeting, environmental safety, construction materials, legal permits, etc.

Construction Management, on the other side, deals with the onsite aspects of a construction project. This is where hands-on experience is more important, as construction managers work directly with materials, techniques, and engineers to take designs and transform them into real constructions.
