Construction Design and Management

A four-course, project-based CTE Program of Study. Project-based learning (PBL) is a dynamic classroom teaching method in which students actively explore real-world problems and challenges to acquire a deeper knowledge about the subject matter. Students gain knowledge and skills by completing and revising projects that address complex questions, problems, or challenges. The instructor doubles as a facilitator, working with students to frame worthwhile questions, structuring meaningful tasks, coaching both knowledge development and social skills, and carefully assessing what students have learned from the experience. PBL also creates opportunities for groups of students to collectively gather information and think critically, thus developing essential collaboration skills required in the workplace.

Students will develop an understanding of the built world through the design and construction process. Each course uses the project-based learning approach to advance students’ understanding of the design-build-maintain process. Advanced architectural drafting and design skills are developed through lab-based instruction using Autodesk software tools (AutoCAD and Revit Architecture). Throughout the program, students will develop a portfolio to demonstrate knowledge of each phase of the design and construction management process. Students will also have the opportunity to earn industry certifi cation in AutoCAD and/or Revit.
