Do you love working with your hands? Are you the kind of person who likes to build things and see concrete results? Check out DCCCD’s Construction Technology program!
Construction Technology is a hands-on construction program with residential and commercial specializations. You’ll learn how to plan, organize, solve problems and communicate well in your building projects.
You can prepare for an entry-level job in many construction areas. Or continue your education in a four-year program. Since you’ll have a foundation for other construction-related programs, you can try out various crafts to find the right fit.
Career options include positions as field engineers, estimators, building inspectors, insurance and manufacturing representatives, field supervisors, subcontractors and builders. We offer commercial or residential specializations.
Classes for all construction-related programs are held at North Lake College’s West Campus at the DFW Education Center, 1401 N. Royal Lane, inside the DFW airport boundaries.
North Lake’s Construction Management is a closely related program that can add management training to your hands-on skills. Both Construction Technology and Construction Management have increased focus on “green” building and sustainable construction practices.
