The Building Construction Technology program at Ivy Tech is filled with hands-on learning experiences with students building full-size mock-ups of houses in our construction laboratory. Students also have the opportunity to participate in service learning construction projects. Every course in this program will prepare students for a national certification.
To gain even more real-world hands-on experience, the Building Construction Technology program partners with several local businesses. Some of these partners include local HVAC contractors, general and electrical contractors. Ivy Tech works closely with these local partners to be sure what we teach our students matches what local employers need.
Graduates from the Building Construction Technology program are work-ready for a variety of trades in the construction industry, and companies across the state contact our instructors looking for high quality candidates to work for them. Our graduates are successfully working at both small and large contracting companies, supply centers with some even owning their own construction businesses.
