Senior Lecturer of Construction Management, Course Lead - BSc Construction Management

School of Engineering and the Built Environment - BE

Working within the construction industry, Dr Posillico has been accountable for financial, schedule and quality management, as well as the owner’s representation services of numerous projects across the United States and Canada. Ranging from large full-service healthcare facilities, unique heritage renovations/restorations and academic facilities, he has developed the leadership, communication and collaboration skills necessary for success within the industry. Additionally, the diversity of projects, teams and construction practices has provided him with an excellent, yet atypical, context for strategically viewing the construction industry. This experience has directly shaped the way in which he approaches construction education, including knowing what knowledge and skills employers in this career field are looking for when hiring new employees.

Teaching in a variety of construction/engineering schools across North America has expanded his knowledge base of innovative curriculum, engaging instructional strategies and students’ learning styles. In addition to developing new module curricula, he also uses different technologies to enhance the learning environment in the classroom. In addition to his technical expertise, his energy, initiative and personality play an important role in the teaching style he employs.

Dr Posillico is committed not only to the communication of curriculum, but also believes that the core fundamental of ‘career readiness’ and its interrelationship with academic theory and the construction industry enhances the success of students today and in the future.
