The mission of the Building Construction Technology program is to enable graduates to achieve their maximum potential in the building construction field. This includes providing and maintaining a strong, active relationship with the construction industry in Northeast Florida through graduates, industry advisory committees, internships and mutual support. This program’s purpose is to prepare the construction management student with skilled craftsmanship, management skills and leadership responsibilities in a technologically oriented, diverse, dynamic and global construction environment.

Completing this program will qualify you for entry-level jobs in residential or commercial construction. You will be able to assist architects, builders, professional engineers and contractors in planning, inspecting and supervising construction projects. You will also learn basic cost estimating/ scheduling, a necessity for an entry level management position in construction materials and equipment as well as managing a project. All courses connect to more advanced or specialized training later and open doors to opportunities in other areas of construction. For more information call 904.633.8295.
