In our programs, 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 understanding new innovative offsite construction developments in prefabrication, increasing awareness of industry needs, creating robust problem-solving skills, innovating toward technology, and mastering entrepreneurial leadership.
