Choosing a career is a daunting task for any student. That's why the Construction Technology program helps students explore a wide range of construction opportunities in residential, commercial and industrial fields during the first year of this program so you can choose a career with confidence.
Many of the graduates of this program have stepped directly into apprenticeship programs in masonry, electrical, plumbing and carpentry. Others have gone on to college majors in construction management, are working for large commercial contractors, went on to start their own business or are able to work on their own homes.
Through both classroom and lab work, students will learn the basics of carpentry, framing, electrical, plumbing and civil construction. Students will be exposed to other interesting areas of the construction business; surveying, drywall, painting, roofing, siding, tiling, designing and estimating.
In the second year of the program, students will be eligible to participate in Work-based Learning. With this, they will be able to work with one of our many industry partners. This opportunity allows students to understand the issues and environments they will encounter in the construction field. After that, your future in construction is wide open as we have employers looking for students with the right skills and attitude.
