The Construction Technology program is designed to prepare students for careers in the construction industry. The occupational competencies are aligned with the National Center for Construction Education and Research standards.

Construction technology includes units of instruction in electrical, plumbing, carpentry, construction math, plans, specifications, and building codes, facilities maintenance, computer-aided drafting, and welding technology.

In addition to obtaining technical skills, students completing the program will have also developed competence in advanced critical thinking, career development, applied academics, and leadership skills required for construction technology occupations. The program uses a delivery system made up of four integral parts: Formal/technical instruction, experiential learning, supervised occupational experience, and the career technical student organization, SkillsUSA. For their own safety, students are expected to wear protective clothing and steel-toed shoes when attending classes. Placement scores in reading, writing, and mathematics sufficient to enter English 098 and Math 098 are required for regular enrollment into the program
