Sask Polytech’s Bachelor of
Saskatchewan Polytechnic offers its Bachelor of Construction
Management (BCM) degree program online to help fast-track
students’ careers up the construction-management ladder.
The online BCM degree program provides students with more flexibility.
“We developed the program with working professionals in mind,” said
Ahmed Hosni, program head for the BCM program. “Students can continue
working full-time, fulfill family obligations and complete the BCM program
at the same time. It’s a win-win for the student and their employer.”
Sask Polytech has been a pioneer in developing highly interactive online
learning environments where students can excel individually and as part of
a learning team led by talented instructors.
“Sask Polytech is known for our online programs and training,” said Paul
Carter, dean of the Joseph A. Remai School of Construction and School of
Transportation. “There’s a growing demand in Saskatchewan, and Canada,
for experienced and quality construction managers. We want to welcome
more students into the BCM program to meet this need. Online learning
allows students to advance their education on their own schedule.”
Graduates of the two-year post-diploma baccalaureate program will be
prepared for leadership roles in the heavy industrial, commercial, engineering
and construction industries.
Students are accepted into Sask Polytech’s BCM program on a first-qualified/
first-admitted basis, after having completed a two-year Sask Polytech
diploma – or equivalent – in architectural technologies, civil engineering
technologies or engineering technology disciplines. Students may complete
the BCM program on a full-time or part-time basis.
BCM courses have been designed as stand-alone units and combine
practical multi-faceted skills with theoretical knowledge and technical
training in a variety of topics, including scheduling, estimating, safety,
contract law, cost control, tendering and project management. An applied
industry-supported capstone project is included in year two.
