What is Construction Technology?
The program prepares students to apply basic engineering principles, technical skills and standard construction practices in support of engineers, construction contractors, internet service providers and other professionals engaged in the construction and maintenance of fiber optic networks. Includes instruction in basic construction principles and techniques, safety, site supervision, construction personnel supervision, plan and specification interpretation, supply logistics and procurement, applicable building codes and permits and report preparation.
If you are good with your hands, detail-oriented and an excellent leader, then construction technology might be for you. Students in this field develop technical skills as well as customer service skills required to be successful in the fiber optic construction business. Graduates become a vital part of the construction team and work on all kinds of projects, from public utilities to private commercial and residential projects. Does this describe you?
