Construction Technology

Program Description
The Architectural Computer Drafting Certificate addresses the construction industry’s need for personnel skilled in architectural drafting and design. Students gain proficiency in CAD drafting as well as the architectural process and required architectural documentation.

The Construction Management Certificate is focused towards those individuals already working with the construction field that want to acquire the managerial skills required for construction project supervision and leadership. Students take a blend of courses from the Construction Technology, Information Technology, and Business concentration areas to develop skills related to building code regulation, scheduling, project management, safety, estimating, and environmental impact.

The Construction Technology certificate provides an introduction to the process of construction from start to finish, including the application of Massachusetts State Building Code, experience using computer assisted drafting software, and building materials and testing. Unique to this program is the integration of principles, practices, standards, and materials necessary to ensure sustainable construction which address environmental issues and renewable energy use.
