Construction Technology, Associate in Applied Science

Curriculum ARC.IBC.AAS (C235A)

(Total Program Credits: 61-63)

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 students with the skills and coursework necessary to transfer to a four-year college or university if they choose.

PROGRAM LEARNING OUTCOMES:

Upon 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;
  • identify sustainability and global environmental issues and their impact in the construction field;
  • 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.

Placement Measures MAT, RHT, and COL sequence placement will be determined by an Academic Advisor. Contact your Academic Advisor or Transfer Specialist (if transferring), before registering for courses.
Developmental education courses do not transfer. They assist students in the path towards college credit.
