“At Millersville I was able to work on a wide variety of classes that covered just about all aspects of the construction industry. I was able to see through the lens of an architect in the CADD class, think like a project manager in the scheduling/estimating classes, and perform the work hands on in the various lab classes. Millersville has provided me with the necessary skillset to get me started on my career as a project manager.”- Tommy Halloway | 2019
ASSOCIATE OF TECHNOLOGY (A.T.) 2-YEAR DEGREE
APPLIED ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY
Construction Technology CONCENTRATION
The Construction Technology concentration within this program 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, materials and processes, and construction methods. 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.
Minor in Construction Technology
Construction Technology minor students complete 18 credits of technical courses. Four of these are foundational classes in safety, materials processing, and computer-aided drafting & design. Students then select two technical courses focused specifically in construction technologies.
REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER A DEGREE IN APPLIED ENGINEERING & TECHNOLOGY MANAGEMENT, Construction Management:
- Construction careers incorporate a wide range of skills and challenge workers to think creatively and solve problems.
- Construction employment is growing! The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that employment will increase by 21.3% by 2022.
- According to Associated General Contractors of America, Pennsylvania added 12,700 construction jobs during the past year.
MAKE YOURSELF MORE EMPLOYABLE, CONSIDER AN INTERNSHIP:
Construction Management internships combine the student's academic, technical and management preparation with actual on-the-job experiences in designing, building, and managing residential and commercial construction sites. In addition to the technical aspect, internships have a significant management component and students are required to engage in management-related activities such as planning, organizing, directing, and supervision at the workplace. Interns are required to complete 150 hours per each 3-credit internship. The student, the employer, and the Department of Applied Engineering, Safety & Technology faculty work cooperatively to assure the internship experience achieves the best possible learning value.
LABORATORY FACILITIES FOR AETM Construction Management MAJORS:
In addition to work completed in the field, there are three separate facilities used in the Construction Management program. Specific facilities include:
- Materials Processing Labs
