Part-time Associate Certificate 515gacert

Overview

The Architectural & Building Engineering Technology part-time studies program offer courses that reflect the requirements of the construction industry and the needs of the part-time learner. Programs are designed for individuals who have limited experience in the industry and for individuals who are employed in the industry and who require specific upgrading knowledge and skills. Programs consist of mandatory core courses with elective courses that accommodate the part time learner's goals and lead to the award of an Associate Certificate and the Certificate. All programs must be submitted to the Program Advisor for approval by the technology department.

Courses have been designed to satisfy some of the academic requirements of the following organizations:

The Program

This Associate Certificate program is designed to provide students with a competency skill level for working in the field of housing and small building design and construction. Recommended to individuals who want to advance in their careers or are currently working in design/build offices, working with construction documents, material suppliers and installers, estimating, and municipal offices. All credits earned may be applied to the Certificate in Architectural and Building Technology.

Transfer Credit

Some ABET Part-time Studies courses have been developed to align content with first year courses in the Architectural and Building Technology (ABT) diploma program. Those students intending to continue their academic careers in the diploma program MUST APPLY to the ABT full-time program and meet all the Entrance Requirements to be considered for admission. Once accepted, course credits from the ABET part-time studies programs may be granted toward the two-year Diploma. Course credit transfers will be assessed on an individual basis.
