Construction Science

Program Description:  The Associate of Science degree in Construction Science is intended to match, within the constraints of the Core Curriculum, the course of study for the first two years of a typical construction science program at a four-year college or university. With this, it provides the foundation to work at a construction company for the students desiring only an associate degree.
