Program Goals Statement

This certificate introduces students to the construction profession and provides them with the applied technical skills necessary for employment as construction technicians or to direct a construction project. Students learn the process of constructing a green building from the ground up, develop an in-depth working knowledge of energy efficiency, conservation and construction estimating techniques, and gain practical experience in preparing working drawings for building construction. Graduates of this program will be prepared to complete the LEED Green Associate certification, which denotes basic knowledge of green design, construction, and operations. Due to the great­er use of CAD equipment by architects and engineers, as well as drafters, students also develop drafting techniques using computer-aided design and drafting software, including AutoCAD.

Program Information

  • Certificate courses can apply to BCC’s Civil, Architectural and Structural Technology degree programs.
  • Students may earn this certificate and the degree simultaneously.
  • Students interested in transferring to a Bachelor degree program in Engineering should select MTH 171.
