Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s Bachelor of Construction Management degree extended to Holland College graduates

Partnership creates opportunities for Architectural Technology and Construction Technology and Management graduates in Prince Edward Island

October 9, 2018 – By the time students graduate from Holland College’s Architectural Technology and Construction Technology and Management programs next spring, they will be able to enter the third year of the Bachelor of Construction Management program at Saskatchewan Polytechnic.

The program, which is offered online, is designed in stand-alone courses, combining practical multi-faceted skills with theoretical knowledge and technical training in a variety of topics, including scheduling, estimating, safety, contract law, cost control, tendering and project management.

“Holland College is pleased to be able to provide our students with an opportunity to further their education with the well-known and respected Saskatchewan Polytechnic. This agreement provides the flexibility for our students to continue their work while pursuing their educational goals,” said Paul Murnaghan, program manager for engineering technology programs at Holland College.

“This partnership with Holland College is an exciting opportunity,” says Paul Carter, dean of Sask Polytech’s School of Construction. “Once admitted to Sask Polytech, Holland College graduates will enter into the third year of the post-diploma Bachelor of Construction Management program. Thanks to this collaboration more graduates can fast-track their construction management careers.”

Flexibility is an integral component of the Bachelor of Construction Management program, which was designed with working professionals in mind. The program will be offered online for Holland College Architectural Technology and Construction Technology and Management students.
