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:

  • scheduling
  • estimating
  • safety
  • contract law
  • cost control
  • tendering
  • project management

During Year 4 of the BCM, students will participate in an industry-supported capstone project.

SHEQAB-sealThis program is offered with the written authorization of the Minister of Advanced Education, effective July 1, 2017. This authorization was provided after the program proposal underwent a quality assurance review and was found to meet the standards established by the Minister. Prospective students are responsible for satisfying themselves that the program and degree will be appropriate to their needs.



The work integrated learning (WIL) work term may be paid, so you'll earn while you learn. Saskatchewan Polytechnic arranges your interviews; it's up to you to shine. It's also a chance to develop important skills in job interviewing, professional attitude, interpersonal communication and more.

Many of our WIL employers require both a valid Saskatchewan Driver's License and a clean driver's abstract. For international students, it can take up to 12 months to obtain a driver's license; therefore, it is to your advantage to come with a driver's license from your home country if possible.

Admission method

First Qualified/First Admitted

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.
