Construction Technology

No new students will be accepted into the Construction Technology certificate for the 2020-2021 academic year.


The Construction Technology certificate provides an introduction to the process of construction from start to finish, including the application of Massachusetts State Building Code, experience using computer assisted drafting software, and building materials and testing. Unique to this program is the integration of principles, practices, standards, and materials necessary to ensure sustainable construction which address environmental issues and renewable energy use. In addition, students have the opportunity to complete the certificate with the selection of two electives from a selection of construction, business, and environmental technology courses.

The coursework in the Construction Technology certificate may be helpful in obtaining the knowledge and skills necessary to pass the Massachusetts Construction Supervisors Exam.
