  • Construction and Carpentry

    [Architecture and Construction Cluster]

    This program of study is an introduction to the carpentry trade and its application as a career in the construction industry. Basic building materials and construction methods are thoroughly covered in preparation for the program’s projects. Classroom emphasis is on construction-related math, reading and interpretation of both commercial and residential plans and blueprints, applicable building codes, building layout and sustainable green construction methods. Each course has a laboratory component that applies classroom curriculum to assigned shop projects, includes appropriate local field trips, and begins site preparation and layout for the fall and spring semester’s class projects. 

    The practicum includes a non-paid, campus-based internship, or a paid off-campus apprenticeship with an industry partner where the student can begin earning real-world experience.

    The Construction and Carpentry program of study is currently available and open for enrollment at Career Institute East, Career Institute North and Career Institute South.
