Careers and Post-Graduate Study Opportunities

Your Career 

There is a huge need in the rapidly growing and increasingly specialized construction industry for construction project managers. Today’s complex building industry requires professional managers who can function successfully in multidisciplinary teams consisting of project managers, architects, engineers, regulators, environmental consultants, urban planners, contractors and trade contractors. Managers also require a comprehensive understanding of quality management systems and sustainable building practices, and a deep and broad technical background in the construction industry.

Some examples of positions include project coordinators, estimators, field engineers, inspectors and construction coordinators.

“The students from this program are fantastic. They are knowledgeable and come with a desire to work hard and do well. They can fill a short-term position for their work term, and their potential as long-term employees is very high.”
Soha Bastani (Deltera Inc., member of the Tridel Group)
