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 provide construction management students with skilled craftsmanship, management skills, and leadership responsibilities in a technologically oriented, diverse, dynamic, and global construction environment.
The Building Construction Technology program prepares students for a rewarding career in the all-encompassing construction fields for residential as well as commercial construction. Instruction consists of academic, laboratory, and hands-on training designed to prepare the students to meet numerous industry standards and for practical certifications. Upon successful completion, students will be qualified for a position as an entry-level building construction technician whose duties are drafting, estimating, supervising, building inspecting, and many other related positions in construction.
Construction jobs today are more complex than ever. Construction managers coordinate and supervise the process from the conceptual development stage through construction, making sure that the project gets done on time and within budget.
A minimum grade of “C” or better must be achieved in all professional coursework.
In this program, you’ll have the opportunity to network with major contractors while you’re still in school. We also refer you for internships and job interviews. Florida State College at Jacksonville’s Building Construction program has a long-standing relationship with this region’s major industry organizations, such as Woods Engineering, ShayCore Enterprises, Superior Construction, Stellar Group, Dickey Smith & Company, Miatt Construction, Accubuild Construction, Haskell, Gilbane, Barton and Malow, and Auld & White.
Members of the Northeast Florida Builders Association serve on our Construction Management Advisory Council and on advisory committees for all trades, as well as provide internships and fund annual scholarships. The advisory committees provide leadership, support, and guidance for the program and support such educational activities as constructing residential projects from design to move in.
