AET/M Construction Technology

Bachelor of Science (AETM): Construction Technology

Bachelor of Science, Applied Engineering & Technology Management, Construction Technology Option

The Construction Technology B.S. option provides students with both the theoretical knowledge and practical skills that are essential for careers in the construction technology. Courses included in this option provide experiences in computer-aided drafting and design (CAD/D), architectural design, blueprint reading, materials and processes, construction methods, construction planning, construction  scheduling, supervision, construction estimating and take-offs, and construction contracts. All courses in this option include practical laboratory experiences and problem solving activities with the tools, materials, equipment and software that are fundamental to understanding the principles of construction technology.

Upon completion of the Construction Technology option, students will be able to perform the following competencies:

  • Demonstrate proficiency in reading and interpreting working drawings and blueprints
  • Use computer-aided drafting/design systems for producing 2D mechanical, architectural drawings as well as design applications
  • Apply mathematical and computer skills in preparing and communicating job materials and labor cost estimates
  • Demonstrate proficiency in using computer applications for creating and communicating job time schedules
  • Identify the elements of a construction contract and be able to read and interpret contracts
  • Analyze and evaluate construction materials to determine the advantages, benefits, and suitability for selected applications
  • Demonstrate safe and appropriate use of tools, materials and processes employed in construction technologies
  • Demonstrate a systematic approach to construction project management techniques.
  • Explain the relationship between drawings, specifications and construction contracts.
  • Apply knowledge of construction methods to practical applications.
