Full course description

Introduction to Commercial Modular Construction is a professional course developed by Clemson University and the Modular Building Institute. Our goal is to provide you with a deep understanding of the terminology, concepts, and process of commercial modular construction. We will look at the whole process of modular construction including from the establishment of client needs, through design and fabrication, transportation, and installation of the modules. You will be able to differentiate between modular construction vs. off-site construction in terms of scheduling, sustainability, return on investment, logistics, quality, and the roles of key participants. If you are interested in breaking into the modular building industry, this course is an excellent way to jumpstart your career!

The course contains six modules:
  • Principles of Modular Construction
  • Participants of Modular Construction
