The Bachelor of Construction Management (BCM) degree program is unique in Saskatchewan offering students the opportunity to earn an after-diploma baccalaureate degree with an additional two years of study. The program was developed in response to industry needs and global trends for trained professionals in the construction industry. The BCM program combines practical multi-faceted skills with theoretical knowledge and technical training, truly a practitioner's degree.
Sask Polytech is proud of its reputation of providing the industry with 'career-ready' graduates, and this degree is no exception while providing a unique, direct, and relevant path for students to earn a degree in this increasingly important area. The curriculum encompasses a comprehensive spectrum of construction management topics including:
- contract law
- cost control
- project management
During Year 4 of the BCM, students will participate in an industry-supported capstone project.
SHEQAB-sealThis program is offered with the written authorization of the Minister of Advanced Education, effective July 1, 2017. This authorization was provided after the program proposal underwent a quality assurance review and was found to meet the standards established by the Minister. Prospective students are responsible for satisfying themselves that the program and degree will be appropriate to their needs.
The Work Integrated Learning Advantage
The work-integrated learning (WIL) work term may be paid, so you'll earn while you learn. Saskatchewan Polytechnic arranges your interviews; it's up to you to shine. It's also a chance to develop important skills in job interviewing, professional attitude, interpersonal communication and more.
Many of our WIL employers require both a valid Saskatchewan Driver's License and a clean driver's abstract. For international students, it can take up to 12 months to obtain a driver's license; therefore, it is to your advantage to come with a driver's license from your home country if possible.
Scholarships and Funding
At Saskatchewan Polytechnic, we make every effort to recognize academic success and provide a financial boost to those who need it most. Scholarships, awards, and bursaries are a great way to provide you with additional financial support, widen your network and enhance your resume by demonstrating your hard work and dedication to your studies. While you are investing in your future, let us invest in you!
Award recipients are commonly selected on financial need, academic achievement, or very often, a combination of the two. Selection criteria can also include volunteer or leadership involvement in your communities and schools.
Thanks to the generosity of donors and alumni, Saskatchewan Polytechnic provides as much as $2 million in student awards every school year.
