Programs through Appalachian State University
Students in the Building Science program receive a very comprehensive and diverse educational experience, which prepares graduates for a variety of careers within the residential, commercial, industrial, performance, and design fields of the building industry. The program delivers the Construction Management concentration to the NCCET. The first cohort began January, 2009. Coursework emphasizes the importance of energy efficiency, sustainable design, construction processes and innovative materials using applied learning techniques and the most current computer software, such as Building Information Modeling (BIM), which is applied to building design, estimating, engineering and scheduling.
The NCCET delivered degree builds upon AAS degrees in construction related disciplines. Classes are scheduled in the evenings to provide access for those working full time. This is a closed cohort model and future students must await a new cohort. Please call Dr. Ramsdell at 828 262 7243 or Renee Cook at 828 262 7334 to indicate your interest in enrolling in the next cohort.
