Full Program Descriptions

Description  

The Residential Construction Management graduate certificate program is offered in collaboration with the Residential Construction Council of Ontario (RESCON). The program is open to graduates of a three-year Construction Engineering Technology program and will provide you with opportunities to broaden your existing skills for work on low-rise and high-rise residential construction projects. This includes gaining experience in estimating, scheduling and controlling costs of residential construction projects as well as applying workplace practices that ensure compliance with relevant health and safety legislation and regulations.

The program provides a hands-on environment for you to learn the specialized skills employers value in project management: procurement, quality control and defects prevention. Class and lab work is project based to replicate on-site construction activities and will give you increased practice in current industry practices and procedures.

Key features of the program include:

  • Class size is a maximum of 15 students. This smaller class size provides increased access to lab facilities and instructor interaction.
  • Semester 1 classes are flexibly scheduled for a three days/week (Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.) to assist students who wish to work part-time while in the program.
  • Semester 2 guarantees a 4-month paid field placement with a member of RESCON. This placement provides you with real-life opportunities to practice the skills learned in Semester 1.
