Residential Construction Technology and Management: Architectural Technology Concentration
Bachelor of Science Degree (B.S.)

The Bachelor of Science degree in Residential Construction Technology and Management is focused on the management of construction projects typified by single-family detached residential housing. The program is a BS degree that is based on students' completion of an applied technology curriculum in Architectural Technology for the first four semesters of the program.

The Bachelor of Science degree in Residential Construction Technology and Management will allow students who have acquired appropriate applied technology skills in their first two years to move into advanced coursework related to residential construction and management. Additional coursework includes basic management and accounting, plus courses focused on topics such as advanced estimating and scheduling, residential building systems, cost control, codes compliance, construction law, purchasing, and energy management issues.

After completing the first four semesters, students may petition to graduate with the A.A.S. in Architectural Technology if they so desire.

Graduates have a diverse set of skills and abilities that could prepare them for "green" careers focused on energy, renewable energy, and the environment. Read more...
