2016-2017 Catalog

Construction Education

Architecture, civil engineering, construction and building science, electrical, heating, air conditioning, refrigeration, apprentice, and plumbing skills programs comprise the new Construction Education area. Students may complete career certificates, certificates of achievement, and two-year associate degrees in various areas, or just choose a single class depending on their needs.

Opening in the fall of 2017, the new Construction Education Center at the Fort Omaha campus replicates an authentic job site, where all the construction-related trades work together.  This provides a state-of-the-art, rich educational opportunity for students interested in the construction industry areas.  

There are programs for the beginning student seeking entry-level employment into the construction-related trades, while advanced skills training opportunities for professionals already in the field seeking to improve their abilities are also provided.  Customized training for industry partners needing to advance their workforce can also be arranged.

All programs provide a high quality learning experience, with a hands-on learning environment using the latest technology found in the professions.
