  • Welcome

    The world of construction is a fascinating and challenging profession that allows workers to be creative, yet improve on their skills and abilities. For decades, SCC has recognized that the construction industry plays a major role in the construction of single-dwelling homes as well as multi-dwellings designed for the comfort and pleasure of everyday living. Other aspects of construction include light commercial and commercial applications. Highly skilled construction technicians are needed in all aspects of the construction industry, including concrete and masonry, drafting and estimating, carpentry, finish, and trim. This ever-growing industry relies upon the skills and talents of those constructing our futures. Opportunities for long-term employment, consistent working hours, increasing job responsibilities and wages are available to those who enter this great profession. Construction is a skill that is needed worldwide.

    Students will participate in program activities and projects that are affiliated with the National Association of Home Builders and the Associated General Contractors professional groups, including the construction of a new house during the Spring semester. These affiliations provide an excellent chance to acquire more industry exposure and to help further develop the necessary leadership skills important for employment success.
