Sustainable Construction Technology

Why a degree in Sustainable Construction Technology?

This program provides students with opportunities to learn sustainable construction skills in a competency-based learning environment. Students work hand-in-hand with professionals both on campus and at construction sites. Students use hand and power tools with blueprints to build foundation forms, frame buildings, side and roof buildings, and apply roofing materials. They install windows, doors, stairs, attic vents, insulation, vapor barriers, and drywall. Students learn methods for installing trim, locksets, suspended ceilings, countertops, cabinets, and flooring. They also learn to operate construction equipment. In addition to general education courses, students in the program learn safety practices. Students construct real-world projects and can earn a Certificate of Applied Science or an Associate of Applied Science.
