AB Tech's Building Construction Science Diploma program focuses on live projects and hands-on activities to teach students energy efficient construction materials and methods associated with high-performance buildings. Students will learn advanced framing methods and other alternative building techniques associated with ‘green building’. Students will also learn energy auditing techniques and software associated with building energy analysis. Students will graduate from this program with the skills required to build high-performance buildings and monitor their energy use. As the construction industry reinvents itself around more sustainable building concepts, the Building Construction Science Program at A-B Tech is the “go to” place for training and retraining for a new era of construction. All credits in this program can transfer into the Associates Degree in Construction Management Technologies which would allow a student to graduate in two years with a diploma and a degree. Many of the credits transfer into our Sustainability Technologies program as well. Furthermore, some credits will transfer into four-year programs.
