Sustainable Construction Technology A.A.S.

John Freer, Director

This two-year Associate of Applied Science course of study is designed to prepare students for a wide range of building industry career paths. Students will get hands-on training in various job-site skills, including safety training as well as instruction and practice in entry-level skills, including site preparation and layout, concrete forming and placement, residential framing, roofing, siding, and window installation. Students pursuing a certification in Green Building or Construction Management can apply those credits toward this degree.

Additionally, students will be exposed to basic job-site control practices, scheduling, estimating, and the major guiding principles of green building and sustainable construction. Working on an actual on-site modular home, students completing the program will have experience and exposure to all aspects of residential construction, including foundations, framing, roofing, siding, insulation, drywall, cabinetry, floor finishes, and the process of basic project management.
