  • PMT 720 - Project Management Studio I
    This studio course studies development processes as applied to specific project conditions. Students undertake group and individual examinations of market and feasibility studies, real estate planning, approvals processes, proposal calls, construction phase issues, and facilities operation. The course provides students with opportunities to apply and integrate knowledge gained in Phases I, II and III to a variety of project management problems. Students will continue to develop skills in critical examination and problem solving methodologies. In this studio, students are expected to develop demonstrably higher order leadership and teambuilding skills and abilities in graphic, written and verbal communication and to gain a working understanding of the component elements of all phases of a development project.

  • PMT 721 - Economics for Project Management
    Financing, cost planning and control are addressed in depth. In the course, the physical factors affecting the value of real property, methods of budget determination, quantity and scope of work estimation, elemental cost analysis and determination, and planning, scheduling and control are explored. These are considered in the programming, planning and approvals stages of developments, and are applied to a range of ownership options and building types. Tools and techniques for building programming, decision-making, implementation control and life cycle costing will be evaluated.

  • PMT 722 - Information Systems
    This course provides students with an in-depth exposure to the information systems, tools and techniques that are commonly used in the AEC industry. The course examines how management information systems, using current computer technology, can provide project managers with the data necessary to perform their management functions. Information systems currently in use in the industry are examined, with particular emphasis on project planning, scheduling, resource allocation and the control of time and cost, from both practical and theoretical standpoints. Innovative approaches are also explored.

  • PMT 821 - Construction Practices and Management
    Students undertake a detailed study of the materials and methods of construction service, delivery and control as applied to a variety of building types. Included are investigations of building materials, construction techniques, and contract and cost control methodologies. Attention is given to the context of the AEC industry, organizations and the project manager's roles and responsibilities. Students will appraise the multiple aspects of site operations and evaluate site management performance. There is a focus on the role of value engineering as an integrated decision making tool throughout all phases of a construction project. Students must complete both PMT 721 and PMT 722 prior to taking this course.

  • PMT 822 - Procurement and Construction Management
    This course presents a study of the project management process as applied to projects of the built environment, with an emphasis on novel methods of project delivery and procurement procedures, site management, commissioning, and facility management. The use of project control systems in the management of these phases is studied, as are techniques of construction management in relation to the planning and control of site operations. Students are introduced to contemporary construction methods and equipment. The importance of the role of the project manager in ensuring the build-ability and cost efficiency of the project is stressed and environmental management issues in the construction process are presented. In a review of the construction industry, the changing roles of the participants, and current trends and problems are discussed.
