Construction Technology

Building a brighter future!

If your motivation is having something to show for your work and taking pride in a job well done, then a rewarding career in Construction Technology might be just what you are looking for. The Construction Technology program offers a curriculum that leads to positions with construction companies in residential and light commercial building development or working independently as a contractor. Graduates will be able to build a house from the ground up through all phases of the building process and/or fix and remodel an existing home.

What are my career choices?

A construction technology diploma or degree can lead to careers in residential and light commercial building development, or get you started in business as an independent contractor. This program is an excellent background for many other career options such as architect, engineer, building inspector, surveyor, construction manager, estimator and even plumbers and electricians.

What classes do I have to take?

You'll take a core of Construction Technology courses, technical electives related to construction and some general education courses. You then apply the skills you acquire in a cooperative or practicum course usually taken in your last semester.

What are my degree, diploma, or certificate options?
