Developed in partnership with the College of Built Environments, UW Professional and Continuing Education (PCE) offers a variety of certificate programs. Taught by industry professionals and CM faculty, certificate programs are not part of a degree program but are designed for working professionals who seek to continue their education, those interested in exploring the field, or professionals in a related field who would benefit from a background in CM.
Prospective graduate students who lack the educational and professional background to enter the graduate program also benefit from the CM certificate programs.
Construction Management Certificate
Designed for continuing education or to satisfy prerequisites for the Master of Science in Construction Management, the CM certificate program is taught by industry professionals, covering the skills necessary to successfully manage construction projects. The program includes five academic credit courses, as well as two prerequisites, and is offered both online and in-person.
Building Information Modeling “BIM” Certificate
The Center for Education and Research in Construction (CERC) and Skanska teamed up in order to develop a uniquely focused, applied Building Information Modeling (BIM) skills certificate course. Students will leave this course with tangible BIM software skills and an understanding of work processes, as well as enough industry context to decide why and how to leverage these capabilities.
This three-hour, weekly course is being offered twice each year in Fall and Spring. Unlike other CM Certificate programs, this course is offered through CERC and available 100% online. Please note that this is a self-sustaining effort and scholarships/financial aid are not available. However, current UW College of Built Environment students and current Skanska employees are eligible for a considerable discount.
Virtual Modeling for Digital Fabrication “VMDF” Certificate
The Center for Education and Research in Construction (CERC) and Turner Construction Co. worked together to develop a course that will give students a deeper understanding of modeling for digital fabrication.
Like our other certificate courses, this course is a three-hour, weekly course. We offer this course in the Winter and is made available 100% online.
This self-sustaining effort is not available for scholarships or financial aid. However, current UW College of Built Environment students and current Turner Construction Co. employees are eligible for a considerable discount.
Facility Management Certificate
This blended program combines online and in-person instruction and is designed to help professionals from many disciplines leverage their knowledge to become skilled in facility management, including relocations, design, operations, and communications.
