Building Construction Technology. A Suggested Curriculum.
This document presents a two-year community college curriculum for training building construction technicians. The technical content is intended to provide the student with an understanding of building construction and expertise as a member of that industry. The technical skills in construction are to be learned as the student participates in a major construction project such as the actual construction of a residential or commercial building supplementing the in-class sessions. The graduates of the program should be able to work closely and discuss the aspects of building construction with engineers and architects. An outline of the two-year set of courses is followed by descriptions of the construction and supporting technical courses and the supporting general education courses of the program. For each course the number of laboratory and class hours are given as well as a general description, objectives of the course, a course outline, the text to be used, and references. Appended are several bibliographies and a list of suggested visual aids. (Author/LJ)
