Students are ready to enter the competitive construction job market as assistant superintendents, cost estimators, and construction schedulers. Students are capable of
building structures and managing construction processes.

The following degree outlines list courses in the recommended order that they may be taken. Students with no prior experience will get an extensive hands-on
curriculum, gaining knowledge and skill that prepare them for working in the construction industry. Beginning students with no construction experience will rarely be
allowed waivers or substitutions for first semester courses.

Students who have experience should call the Building Construction Technology department and talk with a department faculty advisor for possible waivers or
substitutions in the sequence of courses. A student may gain college credits if adequate experience, skill, and knowledge is exhibited via a challenge exam.

Students should ordinarily follow the Building Construction Technology recommended and required sequencing of courses. Students and ACC advisors should contact
the department with any questions concerning course sequencing scheduling or full classes.
