Building Construction Science
Anticipated growth in business investment for new factories, office buildings, stores, hotels, power plants and other structures should continue to stimulate the demand for workers in the building construction field. Maintenance and repair work on all types of structures will also contribute to this demand. Workers in this field build, repair and modernize all types of buildings, including homes, office and commercial structures.

In this program, students will learn to:

• Prepare building sites, construct foundations and finish structures, frame and finish various buildings systems
• Apply learned skills through construction of residential buildings
