CMG 6400 4 Quarter Hours
Course Level CPS - Graduate
Description Seeks to provide a foundation in both technical skills and individual written and verbal communication for construction project managers. Since students come to the program from a variety of educational and experience backgrounds, offers students an opportunity to be assessed and brought to the level necessary for successful completion of the program. Topics covered include construction documentation, including specifications and drawings; the preconstruction processes required for planning; and construction operations needed for successful operations and control, including estimating, cost control, and change-order management. Students practice scheduling techniques, progress monitoring, and reporting approaches for projects and are introduced to construction organizations, contractor selection, and project procurement.
