SCC’s Building Construction Technology program is a six-quarter (18-month) program. Students are on campus participating in lecture/lab courses during all six quarters of their instruction. A key component of the program is building a new house from the planning stages to the final finishing touches. Since the first house was constructed decades ago, students in the program have built more than 90 homes. Students in the Fall and Spring quarters construct the homes, which are auctioned off after the quarter ends. The program is fully accredited by the state of Nebraska and by the Higher Learning Commission.
