Construction Management Associate Degree Program

Construction Management Associate Degree Program

Upon completion of a diploma program, students are eligible to enroll in an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree program. Diploma programs are designed to help students begin work in their chosen field. Our AAS programs go beyond by allowing students to develop general education skill sets (in areas such as English, History and Math) and complete an advanced level of course work in their chosen field. As long as they have completed a diploma program or a specific number of credit hours from a related concentration, students may begin an AAS program anytime, even at night while they work. All of our AAS completion programs are 100% online.

What is Construction Management AAS?

Construction management is a broad and varied field. Generally speaking, construction management is a professional service that oversees the end-to-end aspects of a construction project. Construction management may include oversight of a project’s schedule, cost, quality, safety, scope and function. Individuals in construction management typically have existing professional experience in a given trade and pursue an Associate of Applied Science degree as an avenue to potentially advance their career in their trade. Such a degree has the potential to open new doors and move up the ranks

The Construction Management AAS program is an associates degree program that is fully online and allows those with a construction-related diploma to continue to hone their skills. The Stautzenberger Construction Management Associates Degree is designed for people who already have 54 credit hours in a construction-related concentration.

What Career Options are Available in Construction Management?

Construction management has many different career options and many different career paths. A career in construction management may include the planning, directing and coordinating of various construction trades projects and you may oversee the work of subcontractors.
