The Cal Poly Construction Management Department is renowned as one of the best programs in the nation. From holding one of the highest competition success rates to almost 100% job placement right out of school for graduates, Cal Poly undoubtedly lives up to that reputation. With that, in order to ensure that the department continues to produce well rounded graduates, it is crucial to regularly assess any potential shortcomings that the construction management curriculum may possess. As one of the three sides of the construction management triangle, the ability to read and create a construction schedule is a crucial skill for any project engineer or manager to possess. There is a broad spectrum of elements that go into creating a project schedule: from the programs, to the sequencing, to the overall logistics. This topic is something that is lacking in the current curriculum. This construction scheduling module would add to the overall Cal Poly Construction Management degree as well as benefit the graduates for the entirety of their careers.
