Building Construction Technology

The Building Construction Technology curriculum is designed to provide students with an overview of the building construction industry. Construction lab/lecture courses and other related classes, provide students with up-to-date knowledge on materials, trends, and techniques of the ever-changing construction industry.

Course work includes basic construction concepts such as general construction, blueprint reading, construction estimating, and project management. Students will also diversify their knowledge of construction in other areas like electrical wiring, construction surveying, plumbing, and static/strength of materials.

Graduates should qualify for entry-level jobs in any general construction setting and should be able to advance quickly to management positions such as supervisors, superintendents, project coordinators, project planners, estimators, and inspectors.

Students enrolled full-time and making satisfactory progress should complete this program in five semesters. Additional time may be needed to achieve minimum requirements in English, Math or Science.

This program offers a Carpentry Diploma. Contact the program coordinator or department chair for specific requirements.
