Construction Technology, Associate in Applied Science

Curriculum ARC.IBC.AAS (C235A)

Construction Technology combines a hands-on construction program with technical course study. Students will receive hands-on training in trades like carpentry, plumbing, and electricity, as well as obtain the engineering and construction skills to plan, organize, solve problems and communicate well in the execution of building projects. Students will develop financial and business knowledge to become a construction technician.  Construction Technology allows students to specialize in their area of interest. Graduates could enter as project coordinators with contractors and engineers, building departments, developers and construction-related fields. The program is designed to provide student with the skills and coursework necessary to transfer to a four-year college or university if they choose.

PROGRAM LEARNING OUTCOMES:

At the successful completion of the Associate in Applied Science Degree in Construction Technology program, the graduate will be able to:

  • recognize how the history of architecture impacts design solutions;
  • utilize state of the art equipment and software to develop drawings for design and construction;
  • interpret drawings and specifications for construction projects;
  • navigate modern codes to find project requirements;
  • utilize appropriate forms in the construction, permit application and payout processes; and
  • develop cost estimates for small constructions projects.
