Few careers provide for the opportunity to leave a legacy. Construction Management lets you say, "I built that!" Assistant superintendents provide leadership to the project often from initial concept to completion.

Commercial construction assistant superintendents work in all phases of the construction business: public and private owners; small multi-family projects to the largest of skyscrapers and industrial projects; rural highways to major interstates. Whatever the project, they keep the project on track and within budget. Working closely with architects, engineers, owners, and the various contractors on a job; the construction manager's duties are varied, challenging, and rewarding both emotionally and financially. Optionally, graduates can go into estimating, field engineering, project scheduling, and other management levels both at the general contractor level and for specialty contractors such as mechanical, plumbing, and electrical contractors.

Fully accredited by the American Council for Construction Education, North Lake's Construction Management graduates are in demand in Texas with employment prospects throughout the country.
