The Construction Technology program gives students the skills to gain employment in a construction or maintenance field.

Students can earn certificates in carpentry, residential wiring and electrical trades.

Students studying electrical trades also can pursue a certificate in Photovoltaic Installation, covering the installation of solar panels.

An Associate of Applied Science Degree—with concentrations in General or Electrical Construction—also is available.

Carpentry classes meet in on- and off-campus labs designed for the practical study of residential and commercial construction, including blueprint reading, framing and the International Residential Code.

Residential Wiring students take theory and lab classes (on- and off-campus) in residential wiring, including electrical circuitry, job-site safety and the National Electric Code (NEC), preparing students for the NM Residential Wireman's Certificate of Competence.

The Electrical Trades program enables students to study commercial and industrial wiring methods and motor controls and helps prepare students for the State of New Mexico Journeyman Electrical Certificate.
