Why Study This Program?

The construction industry is vitally important to strengthening the nation’s economy. Millersville University's Construction Technology concentration provides students with both the theoretical knowledge and practical skills that are essential for careers in this thriving industry. This program offers special facilities for students to utilize during their time at Millersville, including a materials processing lab, computer-aided drafting and design programs and a research and development facility. 

MU offers three courses of study for students interested in Construction Technology: a Construction Technology concentration within the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Applied Engineering and Technology Management, an Associate of Technology (A.T.) degree in Applied Engineering and Technology or a minor in Construction Technology to complement one of the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degrees within the Applied Engineering and Technology department. 

MU's Applied Engineering, Safety & Technology degrees are accredited by The Association of Technology, Management and Applied Engineering (ATMAE).

What Will You Learn?

The Construction Technology curriculum gives students experience in computer-aided drafting and design, architectural design, materials and processes, and construction methods. Coursework incorporates practical laboratory experiences and problem solving activities with the tools, materials, equipment and software that are fundamental to understanding the principles of construction technology.

The Associate of Technology course of study within this program provides students with the same basic technical coursework as the four-year Construction Management program, but without courses in management. You will explore production processes, drafting communications, nonmetallic materials, construction technology, material statics and strengths, sustainable systems, computer-aided engineering and more. Required related courses round out the departmental requirements for this degree with options in mathematics and science.

The minor in Construction Technology is available to students who complete 18 credits of technical courses. Four foundational classes explore safety, materials processing and computer-aided drafting and design. Students then select two technical courses focused specifically in construction technologies.

Millersville University's well-established internship program allows students to work with an employer and Applied Engineering, Safety & Technology faculty to achieve the best possible learning value. 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.
