Associate's Degree - Building Construction & Cabinetmaking Technology

The associate in science degree program in Building Construction/Cabinetmaking Technology is designed to include all facets of the residential, and some facets of the commercial building trade, as well as all aspects of the cabinetmaking trade. It also focuses on the role of computers in the estimating, design, and manufacturing components of the industry.

Construction topics include site work and framing procedures for floors, walls, rafters, dormers, and stair systems. Interior installation treatments include drywall installation, taping, and spackling; finished openings, casing, baseboard and molding. The applicable codes are viewed extensively. Methods of sizing all components are stressed, as are the design considerations mandated by the code.

Cabinetmaking component includes the study of machinery and tools, wood as a material, cabinetmaking joints and assembly. Cabinets are built and completed in the lab. The cabinetmaking portion also includes the set-up, programming, and operation of a Computerized Numerical Control (CNC) router. Solid surface materials are studied and fabricated.

The construction and cabinetmaking portions of the course include manual and computer assisted drafting (CAD), print reading, and manual and computer aided estimating. The use of computers is emphasized to make students better prepared for this growing, fast paced industry.

After a core curriculum of the first three quarters, options available to students are:

The Construction Management concentration is designed to give students who prefer a more hands on and estimating construction based experience versus a design based experience at the associate's degree level.

  • A concentration in Cabinetmaking
  • A concentration in Building Construction; or
  • A program, which comprises equally the major elements of both concentrations (dual concentration).
  • A program which combines elements of Building Construction and Architectural Engineering in preparation for the BS degree in Construction Management.

Daytime or evening students who choose either concentration (1) or (2) above must complete an externship which is offered only during the daytime schedule of the college. It is the responsibility of the student to secure the externship site.

The decision to choose a concentration need not be made before the middle of the third quarter. For those students who cannot secure an externship site they must choose the Dual Program.

Program offered is an Associate Degree.
