This program will provide students with the opportunity to study the managerial and technological facets of the residential and commercial construction industry. By combining technical instruction concerning construction with management concepts, the program will prepare students to take on a supervisory role in the field. It will develop their understanding of current building codes, construction materials and processes, principles of design, and construction safety.
In the classroom, laboratory and field, students will be introduced to the fundamentals of design, building construction and the basic engineering of structures. This background will then be further enhanced by exposing students to such topics as interpreting construction documents, the importance of communication skills, project scheduling, as well as understanding job cost reports.
Graduates of this technical major may work as technicians in project management, construction estimating, general contracting, specification writing, project scheduling, construction sales, public agencies and project inspecting.
A graduate of this program will earn an associate of applied science degree in civil engineering technology.
