Building Construction Science Diploma

Program Code: 

This program focuses on live projects and hands-on activities to teach students energy efficient construction materials and methods associated with high-performance buildings. Students will learn advanced framing methods and other alternative building techniques associated with ‘green building’. Students will also learn energy auditing techniques and soft-ware associated with building energy analysis. Students will come out of this program with the skills required to build high-performance buildings and monitor their energy use. As the construction industry reinvents itself around more sustainable building concepts, the Building Construction Science Program at AB-Tech is the “go to” place for training and retraining for a new era of construction.

All credits in this program can transfer into the Associates Degree in Construction Management Technologies which would allow a student to get out in 2 years with a diploma and a degree. Many of the credits transfer into our Sustainability Technologies program as well. Furthermore, some cred-its will transfer into four-year programs.
