Residential Construction Management Degree Can Boost Your Career
Have you always been a person who likes to build things? Do you aspire to be involved in more than just one part of the building industry, supervising entire projects? Earning an associate degree in residential construction management can provide you the skills and knowledge to move into a supervisory role.
As the construction industry changes, GTC continues to adapt its curriculum to give students the most up-to-date information in areas like green building practices. By completing both classroom and hands-on construction training, Gwinnett Tech students gain on-target knowledge and skills for this demanding profession.
In order to give students knowledge about how to supervise projects in the increasingly automated field of construction, GTC incorporates projects to give students real-world learning. Past projects have included the building of decks, storage buildings, two-story garages, gazebos, roofing projects and siding replacement/installation. Students also participate in building a shed for Relay For Life every year.
Right now, Gwinnett Tech's Residential Construction Management program is also focusing on incorporating additional instruction on remodeling– an emphasis reflected in the marketplace. In a tough economy, many homeowners opt to remodel their existing home rather than move to buy new construction.
Student membership in the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) is also available through GTC, which helps students stay connected with industry trends.
GTC offers an associate degree and diploma in residential construction management in addition to certificates for certified construction worker, finish carpenter, framing carpenter and residential construction manager.
