Construction Technology

The Construction Technology Associate of Applied Science Program provides entry level training for beginning students in residential and commercial contracting skills. The Associate of Applied Science includes instruction for all aspects of residential construction, from infrastructure building (plumbing and electricity) and foundation/masonry, to interior and exterior finishing. The program will be integrated to include technical courses with significant hands-on experience on/off campus (cooperative education experience). Partners for cooperative learning will include local General Contractors, Specialty Contractors and construction companies. This Associate program will create a skilled workforce based on the needs expressed by local construction businesses/owners as recommended by the Program Advisory Committee (PAC). This program requires two (2) years for completion provided that the student is full-time. The Bahamas Technical & Vocational Institute Associate of Applied Science in Construction Technology is awarded upon successful completion of the program.
