Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Alphabetical List of Curricula

(R): 303

There are two areas of concentration leading to the AAS in architectural and construction technology: architectural technology and management of construction. In addition, two certificates are offered: CAD for the building professional and management of construction. Both of the AAS areas of concentration are designed to prepare graduates for entry into paraprofessional positions in the construction-industry and architecture upon completion of the curriculum. (See Architectural Technology )

This AAS area of concentration is designed to prepare graduates to organize, operate, manage, and control the unique and demanding systems, procedures, and services in the construction industry, both on the job site and in the contractor’s office. Areas of study include cost control, planning, scheduling, controlling and expediting construction, contract bidding and estimating, personnel management, and the overall management of construction operations. This curriculum prepares students for construction management careers in any type or size of construction firm.

The curriculum is not designed as a transfer program except to institutions having a construction curriculum. A student seeking a four-year bachelor’s degree must meet with the program coordinator in the management of construction program or the applied technologies department chair to work out a suitable program of study.
