Graduates of the Building Construction Management (BCM) program organize, lead, and manage the resources, materials, and the processes related to building construction, both commercial and residential.
Graduates work in such jobs as estimators, detailers, surveying technicians, and in construction sales. With additional experience, successful graduates can advance to field engineering assistant, construction or maintenance supervisor, building inspector, or contractor.
Graduates of the program have the option to transfer their degree to various four-year universities to pursue a B.S. in Construction Management. Students should consult with an academic advisor, or the Dean or Academic Chair of the Building Construction Management program.

The course requirements for the BCM and SBS degree programs are very similar. Consequently, obtaining a second degree is an attractive option to many graduates. Specifically, a graduate of the BCM program may desire to obtain a second degree in SBS.
Fundamentally, a minimum of 15 additional credits must be taken.
A graduate of the BCM program (7000) who desires to also receive a SBS (7050) degree must take:
(This means an BCM graduate must take between 15 credits additionally to receive a second degree in SBS.)
Also included are two BCM electives (3 credits/each)
