Construction is one of the fastest-growing industries in the state of Maryland.

Our Construction Management program will lead you to a rewarding career that lets you see your results. You’ll learn how to combine scientific mastery of technical principles with solid business acumen. At the end our program, you can begin your career as field personnel at the construction site or office management, or choose to transfer to a four-year institution. Frequently our students do both.

Career Degrees

AACC offers the following Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degrees. The state of Maryland refers to the A.A.S. as a career degree, because it's intended to provide you with skills to enter the workforce. In some cases, AACC has entered into transfer agreements that allow these degrees to transfer to select colleges. A list of active agreements may be found on this website. You can also learn more about transferring from AACC to continue your education.
