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. These students are also eligible for the Manufacturing Program through DTCC, starting their Junior year.
