90 CREDITS

Program Admission Dates: Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer

The Associate in Construction Management DTA/MRP degree is a pathway for students planning transfer to CWU, UW, and WSU for a major in Construction Management (American Council for Construction Education (ACCE) accredited programs http://www.acce-hq.org/index.htm). It also provides information for transfer to EWU’s BS in Technology, Construction Management.

Construction Management DTA/MRP students should contact their potential transfer institution(s) early in their program regarding:

  • The specific course choices in each area of the Statewide agreement where options are listed (humanities, social science)
  • Admission requirements for both the insitution(s) and the major, including overall minimum GPA, a higher GPA in a selected subset of courses, or a specific minimum grade in one or more courses
    • Construction management is a compettive degree program and may require a higher GPA overall or a higher GPA in specific courses
    • Meeting the minimum requirements of the degree does not guarantee admission to the transfer insitution(s) and the major

Construction Management DTA/MRP graduates will:

  • use the scientific method to analyze natural phenomena and acquire skills to evaluate authenticity of data/information relative to the natural world
  • apply mathematical knowledge through calculus
  • define the basic concepts of Introductory Mechanical Physics
  • describe fundamentals of engineering graphics including: terminology, media, line conventions, scaling, sketching, geometric construction, isometric drawing, and basic orthographic projection, as defined in ASME and AIA standards
  • demonstrate knowledge of basic AutoCAD or Solid Works for Engineering skills
  • demonstrate communication, intercultural appreciation, teamwork, information literacy, and critical thinking
  • meet Social Science, Humanities, Written Communication, and Quantitative Reasoning distribution area outcomes

Lake Washington Institute of Technology does not offer every course each quarter. It is the student’s responsibility to consult the Class Schedule and work out an individual schedule with an advisor. Any developmental coursework a student may be required to complete may increase the program length.
