The Bachelor of Construction Management (BCM) degree program is unique in Saskatchewan offering students the opportunity to earn an after-diploma baccalaureate degree with an additional two years of study. The program was developed in response to industry need and global trends for trained professionals in the construction industry. The BCM program combines practical multi-faceted skills with theoretical knowledge and technical training, truly a practitioner's degree.
Sask Polytech is proud of its reputation of providing industry with 'career ready' graduates, and this degree is no exception while providing a unique, direct and relevant path for students to earn a degree in this increasingly important area. The curriculum encompasses a comprehensive spectrum of construction management topics including:
During Year 4 of the BCM, students will participate in an industry-supported capstone project.
This program is offered with the written authorization of the Minister of Advanced Education, effective July 1, 2017.

ACCUPLACER©To be confirmed
The First Qualified/First Admitted (FQFA) process is used for the majority of Saskatchewan Polytechnic programs. When we determine that you meet the program's admission requirements, you will be offered admission based on the date you fully qualify for the program. The earlier you provide the appropriate documents and information that qualify you for admission to the next intake, the earlier you might begin your studies. Your application, once qualified, is always considered for the next intake.
Applicants to programs with multiple intakes in an academic year remain in the application pool until the last intake for that academic year has begun. Programs using the FQFA process receive applications year round and maintain an application pool for each academic year. Qualified applicants who are not offered a seat must reapply for the next academic year.
Sponsored programs or programs targeted to specific groups do not accept applications year round or maintain an application pool.
See Admission Processes for more information about this method of admission.
Year 3 - $8,600
Note: An open elective for Semester 8 is to be determined.

Thanks to the generosity of donors and alumni, Saskatchewan Polytechnic gives away more than $2 million in student awards during the academic year.
