The Construction and Development Program focuses on providing broad transferable skills in all aspects of designing and erecting buildings and other physical structures. In addition to the construction trades, students will learn about management, finance, technical and production skills, labor issues, health and safety regulations, and environmental issues as they relate to the construction trades.
Requirements to Enroll and Complete Program: Be in good academic standing with an overall GPA of 2.0 or higher.
The focus is building design and applying skills to a variety of hands-on projects. Use 3D modeling software, including AutoCAD and Revit Architecture, to create various plans for construction and architectural models, and gain experience in the design-build-maintain process by completing a development project that includes construction standards; coordination of the construction process; estimating, planning and scheduling; and site management.
