The Associate of Applied Science in Construction Technology is an "umbrella" degree that groups the disciplines of architecture, civil and construction management technologies, (commonly referred to as "AEC" - architecture, engineering and construction).

The degree is a two year - 60 credit degree that tracks students studying in all three disciplines through a common first year of courses.  Starting in the third semester, students will begin to track into one of the three specific concentrations they choose to major in.  Courses common within the core, prepare and lead students into the courses that form the concentration and provide students with the knowledge, practice, and skills required to enter employment in their discipline upon graduation at the technician level, qualified as technical designers, engineering technicians, and construction management technicians in inspection, testing, scheduling, and estimating.

Composed of a technical core with specific expanded topics, students establish a foundation essential in the AEC industries that includes construction materials, blueprint reading, codes and regulations, contracts and specifications, surveying, and CAD (computer aided design) with a BIM (building information modeling) focus.  The architecture track expands on the design process and sustainable site development, while the civil track expands upon structures, hydrology and drainage, and soils.  The construction management track rounds out the third concentration with a focus on construction estimating, logistics, critical-path, and scheduling.

Upon completion, students will be qualified at the technician level in architecture, engineering or construction firms, municipal building and planning offices, transportation, utility, and construction departments, or may transfer into a baccalaureate program.
