What is the Construction Supervision Program?

  • The Baltimore City Community College (BCCC) Construction Supervision Program prepares students to serve as assistant project managers, construction supervisors or independent business owners in the construction industry. The curriculum provides experience and instruction in safety regulations, blueprint reading, construction methods, estimating, scheduling, operational procedures, effective communication, procurement and fiscal and business management. Students seeking a dynamic career in the construction industry can earn a degree or certificate.

What Degree or Certificate Can I Earn?

    The degree option is designed for both experienced tradespeople and those with no prior knowledge of the construction trades.
