The Construction major merges concepts of skilled trades and management where projects
make connections between science, technology, engineering and math with real-world
opportunities. An exciting, hands-on opportunity awaits students as they learn to create and
analyze construction documents and build scale and life-sized prototypes. Partnering with ABC
in New Castle, DE, students follow the NCCER construction curriculum and will sit for trade
certification exams, recognized by industry. Starting their Junior year, these students are also
eligible for the Manufacturing Program through DTCC. Students are encouraged to participate in
ACE Mentoring program, a nationwide program designed to introduce students to a wide range
of career opportunities including but not limited to architecture, engineering and more.
