Construction Technology - Management AAS

The SCC Construction Technology Program combines the NCCER Curricula with the Associate of Applied Science Degree requirements. Students will receive an Associate of Applied Science Degree upon completion of this program. Program curriculum is based on NCCER Curricula & combines illustrated instructional material with structured classroom activities.

This program emphasizes four levels of carpentry. Each level builds on the previous level, continuing the students’ education and knowledge of carpentry. Agreements exist with local high schools that will allow students to take up to level 2 of carpentry while still in high school.

During the summer term, between the students’ first and second year, a paid internship is required. This paid internship enables the student to experience an actual work environment provided by a local construction company.

Upon graduation, the student will receive an Associate of Applied Science Degree.
