The Construction Technology program allows students the opportunity to complete certificates at two levels and to transfer these certificates toward an Associate of Applied Science degree in Industrial Engineering Technology.  The Level I Construction Technology certificate is for students who intend to seek entry-level employment after completing a one-year program of study. The Level II certificate is for students interested in advancing their skill level beyond Level I.

The curriculum utilizes National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) a nationally-recognized credentialing and certification system.  This National Registry system assures portability of skills by providing transcripts, certificates, and wallet cards to students who successfully complete the program.  

Career areas can include carpenter, electrician, brick and block mason, plumber, drywall installer, construction laborer, construction supervisor and more.
