Construction Technology



The Construction Technology diploma will provide students with a broad background in foundational construction industry skills such as safety practices; use of hand and power tools; reading construction documents (i.e. drawings, specifications); project management; and basic electrical, carpentry, plumbing, HVAC, machining, and welding skills. Small community-based projects will provide the opportunity to apply these skills. Students will be introduced to several construction careers through site visits and subject matter expert guest lectures to assist in choosing the right career path. The four primary trades highlighted in this program include carpentry, electrical, plumbing, and heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC). 

Building on the skills learned in the 1-year diploma, the AAS degree provides students with specific, advanced skills in their chosen trade through immersive work-based learning experiences at industry partner job site(s). As employees of the company, students will “earn while they learn” as they complete their internship classes. The AAS program also provides students with pathways to continue their education to a bachelor’s degree in Applied Engineering, Applied Management, or Project Management.



Students completing this AAS will be able to: 

  • demonstrate safe and proper use of construction site tools, supplies, and equipment;  
  • demonstrate foundational knowledge for construction careers and apply appropriate technical skills in a chosen trade specialty;  
  • utilize advanced technology solutions to bring efficiency to technical processes;  
  • apply innovative approaches to a problem or process by applying technical knowledge;  
  • demonstrate professional ethics: honesty, respect, teamwork, reliability and initiative when dealing with peers and supervisors;   
  • professionally communicate and interact with others in a variety of settings; and  
  • demonstrate social responsibility through community engagement in their profession
