Architecture and Construction
 Architecture is the activity of designing and constructing buildings and other physical structures, primarily done to provide socially purposeful shelter. A wider definition often includes the design of the total built environment, from the macro level of how a building integrates with its surrounding man made landscape  to the micro level of architectural or construction details and, sometimes, furniture. The term "architecture" is also used for the profession of providing architectural services.

 Construction is the process of adding structure to real property. The vast majority of building construction projects are small renovations, such as addition of a room, or renovation of a bathroom. Often, the owner of the property acts as laborer, paymaster, and design team for the entire project. However, all building construction projects include some elements in common - design, financial, and legal considerations. Many projects of varying sizes reach undesirable end results, such as structural collapse, cost overruns, and/or litigation reason, those with experience in the field make detailed plans and maintain careful oversight during the project to ensure a positive outcome.

Construction Technology is designed to provide today's construction industry with professionals skilled in the complexities of construction contracting. Given the diversity of the construction profession, this program covers multiple areas to produce a graduate who is employable in a variety of professional construction positions or entry into a post secondary Construction Management, Architecture, or Engineering program. This curriculum incorporates communication (oral & written), on-the-job training (cooperative education), and real life examples and projects throughout the program.
