Engineering Technology - Building Construction, AA

Are You Interested in a Career in Building Construction?

The purpose of this transfer track is to provide students the opportunity to gain knowledge in the disciplines necessary for a career in building construction.  The track is designed to meet the first two years of preparation for a four-year degree based on the program offered at the University of West Florida and Florida A&M University.  Students should be familiar with the admission requirements of the university they plan to attend.

A four-year degree could lead to self-employment in the construction field; contract work for a government agency or private business; or employment by a private construction firm.  Individuals are required to pass a state exam and meet all state licensing requirements to become a licensed contractor.
