New Student Admissions: who can enroll - getting started - more answers


Welcome to the Building Construction Technology department! Students become ready to enter the competitive construction job market as assistant superintendents, cost estimators, and construction schedulers. Students are capable of building structures and managing construction processes.

  • Students with no prior experience get an extensive hands-on curriculum, gaining knowledge and skills that prepare them for working in the construction industry. Beginning students with no construction experience will rarely be allowed waivers or substitutions for first semester courses.
  • Students who have construction experience should contact a Building Construction Technology instructor to discuss possible waivers or substitutions in the sequence of courses. A student may gain college credits if adequate experience, skill, and knowledge is exhibited via a challenge exam.

Students should ordinarily follow the Building Construction Technology recommended and required sequencing of courses. Students and ACC advisors should contact the department with any questions concerning course sequencing scheduling or full classes.

Some of the construction classes are offered at different times in different semesters (for example, during the day in the spring and in the evening in the fall), so if a particular class isn't offered at a convenient time during the upcoming semester, that may change in the future. Ask an instructor.

Be sure to visit the Frequently Asked Questions page for more information, including on scholarships.
