Ontario’s first internationally accredited four-year degree program specializing in construction management.
The Honors Bachelor of Technology (Construction Management) program provides a curriculum that combines theory, applied research, field study, and hands-on practical education. Recognizing that today’s successful construction manager must possess both technical and managerial skills, the curriculum combines studies in construction engineering and technology with studies in business and management methods as applied to construction.
Students obtain the knowledge and skills to manage the functions and processes of construction projects from start to finish. They master construction-related technical disciplines and soft skills that are critical to completing projects on time and within budget. Graduates of this program are entitled to the academic credential designation of Hons. B.Tech. (Construction Management).
The Honors Bachelor of Technology (Construction Management) program is well recognized by the construction industry and is fully accredited by the Canadian Institute of Quantity Surveyors (CIQS), the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). Graduates of this program are qualified to obtain professional memberships in various construction management associations. Professional memberships are based on the candidate’s education, training, and work experience.
Graduates also qualify to obtain their Gold Seal Certification (GSC) offered by the Canadian Construction Association (CCA) to become certified superintendents, foremen, estimators, project managers, construction managers, and safety practitioners.
Your Field Education Options
An integral component of the Honours Bachelor of Technology (Construction Management) degree program is a mandatory field experience semester offered in the spring/summer of the third year of the program. The field experience is jointly facilitated through the Angelo DelZotto School of Construction Management and the Centre for Construction and Engineering Technologies (CCET) Industry Liaison Office (ILO).
Students are required to complete a minimum of 450 hours of appropriate field experience or the equivalent of verifiable past field experience, in the field of construction management in order to fulfill the field experience requirement.
Students are allowed to complete the field experience through the following pathways:
Field Experience course: Students register in the Field Experience course (TCOP1001), secure a field experience opportunity in a construction management-related role, obtain a minimum of 450 hours of relevant fieldwork experience or equivalent and pass the course.
Prior Learning Assessment Recognition (PLAR): Students who have prior field experience equivalent to the minimum requirement can seek to complete the field experience requirement of the program through the PLAR process.
