The Construction Technology Department offers a two year program leading to an Associate Degree in Applied Science or a one-year Certificate of Completion. These progressive programs provide the basic skills and knowledge used for light commercial and residential construction. Both tracks are designed to complement apprenticeship training of various craft trade professions and offer a standardized construction curriculum with portable credentials.    

The Construction Technology program provides learners with a well-rounded education in construction principles and practices with an emphasis on real-world hands-on learning experience in our construction laboratory.  Learners build full-size mock-ups and participate in various service learning construction projects that will prepare learners for a fulfilling craft trade profession of their preference.  

Graduates from the Construction Technology programs are work-ready for a variety of craft trade professions in the construction industry. The Construction Technology Department works closely with local professional craft trade partners to insure what we teach our learners is what meets the needs of local employers. Our graduates are successfully working at both small and large contracting companies and some even owning their own businesses.  

Curriculum is certified by the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER).

The Construction Technology Program at St. Philip’s College offers program instruction in English only.
