The Building Construction Technology curriculum is designed to provide students with an overview of the building construction industry.  Construction labs/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, statistics/strength of materials, and HVAC.

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

100% of 2010 Graduates available for work were employed within the year.

Average Starting Salary for 2009 Graduates was $32,000.00.
