Construction Management - A.A.S. Degree (Career)
The demand for construction managers is projected to grow twice as fast as other management occupations by 2022 due to population growth, an aging infrastructure, and the continual emergence of energy efficiency trends.
Construction managers, also called general contractors, are responsible for planning, coordinating, and supervising construction projects from initiation to completion - on time and within budget.
Construction Management by the Numbers
Construction management occupations have an expected growth of 11 percent nationally and 10 percent locally from 2016–2026, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. In Maryland, the average annual salary for construction managers is $107,700, higher than the national median pay, with median averages for entry-level wages standing at $64,800 per year.
As demand continues to increase and workers retire or transfer to other positions, newly trained construction managers will be needed to handle an increased workload.
