The Construction Technology curriculum is designed to give students broad training not only in a specific trade but in a variety of useful academic subjects. Preparatory training through education is provided in areas of the industry such as contracting, remodeling, finish carpentry, and cabinet making. The program provides foundational training for construction management programs as well as training for entry-level employment in the building industry.
