“The one thing that I’ll always remember about being enrolled in North Lake’s Construction Management program is the amount of knowledge and applicable construction information a student could learn from the professors,” says Keith D. Hanspard. “All of my professors were construction professionals (i.e., architects, engineers, project managers, estimators, etc.). The professors I encountered were an excellent source to learn from, since they dealt with what they were teaching on a day-to-day basis.”
Hanspard earned an associate degree in Construction Management and a certificate in Construction Technology at North Lake College. He works as a construction project engineer for a company with offices in Dallas and Austin. Daily tasks include processing submittals, monthly reports, subcontractor bid proposals, weekly meeting minutes, daily reports, subcontractor contracts and vendor purchase orders and resolving project-related issues.
“Being exposed to such talented professors helped open my mind so that I could thrive, learn and experience all that I could about the construction industry. I feel that completing the program, along with a few years of actual field experience, played a significant part in helping me secure a position with a local, reputable, general contractor/construction management firm.
“I would strongly recommend to anyone interested in the construction industry to check into the Construction Management Program at North Lake College. I can truly say that this program was very valuable to me and has helped me in my personal and professional goals.”
