​​​​​​​​The Construction Technology program has courses that can be divided into two major areas of emphasis: Residential Trades and Construction Management. Due to the vast diversity of occupations and areas of specialization within the construction industry and recognizing that individual student needs will be as diverse, a Certificate of Achievement can be designed that satisfies those specific needs. Completion of a certificate program satisfies the major requirement for the Associate in Arts degree.
