Course Number and Title: CMT 244 Construction Project Management II
This course further develops an understanding of project management using productivity software. Primary topics include job organization and coordination, project scheduling, critical path method (CPM) scheduling techniques, materials management, cost estimates, and reporting. Emphasis is placed on commercial construction contracts, including planning, scheduling, controlling, and analyzing project progress.
- Relate knowledge of project management to construction operations. (CCC 1, 2, 3, 4; PGC 3)
- Outline key pre-construction planning issues. (CCC 1, 2, 3, 4; PGC 3, 4)
- Organize a project schedule using productivity software. (CCC 1, 2, 3, 4; PGC 3, 4)
- Synthesize submittal data. (CCC 1, 2, 3, 4; PGC 2, 3)
- Develop records and resource profiles for completed and ongoing construction projects. (CCC 1, 2, 4; PGC 2, 3, 4)
- Analyze how time affects the associated project costs and final closeout documentation. (CCC 1, 2, 3, 4, 6; PGC 1, 2, 3, 4)
- Demonstrate professional and ethical conduct as expected in industry. (CCC 1, 2, 3, 4; PGC 3, 5)
See Core Curriculum Competencies and Program Graduate Competencies at the end of the syllabus. CCPOs are linked to every competency they develop.
