There are two different pathways in this program: Building Trades Pathway and the Engineering and Architecture Pathway. These pathways are intended for students interested in exploring the skilled trades associated with the building industry as well as engineering disciplines. Steadily growing industrial and high-tech manufacturing segments of the local economy combine with an exceptionally strong construction industry to provide context for the program. Students begin exploration through general introductory courses. Here they survey career opportunities, engineering fundamentals, basic construction tool use and handling, as well as technical communication skills. Higher level courses allow students to explore more specific areas of building construction and engineering. The programs develope sustained partnerships with local businesses, trades unions and colleges to ensure coursework relevance, articulation and professional mentoring.
Typical topic areas include:
• Fine Finish Work
• Residential and Commercial Construction Engineering
• Civil, Structural, Architecture, Surveying
• Mechanical, Robotics
• Electrical/Electronics, Computer, Software
• Animation
This program will assist students in career opportunities such as Construction Management, Construction Journeymen, Engineers and Architects.
