Bachelor of Applied Science in Construction Management

Program Description


The objective of this program is to prepare the student to work in a leadership role in the building and construction field.  The program coursework will include 120 credits and will fulfill the general education requirements for a bachelor’s degree and specific coursework in construction.  The program is designed to train the student through the construction timeline of a building project.  The student will learn construction materials, site construction, foundation and concrete construction, building framing construction, masonry construction, plumbing construction, HVAC construction, envelope construction, electrical construction as well as construction drawings, mechanics, leadership development, technical communication, and accounting practices for the industry.  The student will work daily with construction drawings, construction specifications and product specifications acutely preparing them for actual field conditions.

In the BAS program, students will extend their knowledge base from practical skills and basic project management leadership in the field and move to higher level executive leadership, organizational psychology, and project management.  Key objectives include increasing circumspection of the needs of the industry, creative and robust problem-solving skills, innovation toward technology, and entrepreneurial leadership.  We expect graduates of the BAS program to not only excel in construction knowledge and skills, but to have an acutely high-level analytical skills, executive-level communication skills, and keen awareness of executing full projects via values-based, efficient, and innovative leadership. The students experience saturation in the ideas of data collection and management, automation, AI, robots, rendering, 3D technology, as well as the global business landscape.  Leadership training includes personal leadership assessments and coaching to help graduates become the leaders of the next generation of construction contractors, innovators, and executives.

In addition, General Education credits per the standards of the Department of Education for a BAS degree are included. The Bachelor of Applied Science in Construction Management program devotes 35% (42 out of 120 credits) of its instruction to General Education with at least two Humanities/Fine Arts, two Math/Hard Science, and two Behavioral Science.

This program will be taught online using Basecamp as the secure correspondence platform.  Each semester will have five 3-credit classes for a total of 15 credits per semester. Each class will be 4 months long with 30-45 lessons and assignments.  STONEPILE llc will offer 3 semesters per year: fall, spring, summer.  Each credit will cost $200. A part time student as a maximum of 8 years to complete the program.
