Construction Technology and Management; colleges, entrances, syllabus, jobs.

Construction technology and management is a branch of Civil Engineering and it successfully fuses civil engineering with construction management. A bachelor or masters degree in Construction Technology and Management gives the students an insight into scientific principles involved in construction, understanding about the behavior of construction materials and the fundamentals of structural mechanics. Construction technologists should have good knowledge about different types of materials used for construction, along with testing procedures to assure quality control. The instructional program is highly interdisciplinary and aims at developing strong abilities to conduct construction engineering and management work involving basic concepts and principles, technical analysis, planning, design, and management, and the development of knowledge that positively impacts the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction industry.
