Pierce College is launching a Bachelor of Applied Science in Construction Management this fall – The Suburban Times
Pierce College Announcement.
Pierce College is proud to announce the launch of its sixth Bachelor of Applied Science this fall. The Bachelor of Applied Science in Construction Management (BAS-CM) was developed in conjunction with the local construction industry and builds on our Associate’s Degree in Construction Management. The program is completely online, allowing students to complete their degree while working and managing family obligations.
“We are thrilled to offer this program, especially to students who are already working full-time,” said Dolores Kelley, construction management professor and program chair. “This is a fast-growing industry, and there is a high demand for construction managers who are focused on getting projects done on time, safely and on budget.”
Graduates of the BAS-CM program are prepared for entry-level positions with general contractors, specialty contractors, government agencies, engineering and architectural firms, and construction suppliers. Career paths include project management, facilities management, estimating, planning, and owners’ representatives.
Applicants with an associate’s degree in construction, construction management, or a closely aligned field are encouraged to apply. Applications will be accepted after July 15, 2022 for open seats in the cohort.
“This degree program was championed by the local construction industry and has paid off through the tireless efforts of our Program Chair Dolores Kelley,” said Dean of Health and Technology Ron May. “We hope that this online program will allow students who are bound to place and those who have difficult work and family situations to access a Bachelor of Applied Science.”
