Certificate in Construction Procedures, Materials and Testing

NSF Advanced Technical Education Award

HCCC is proud to announce the Construction Management program has received an Advanced Technology Education grant award of $300,000 from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

Construction Procedures, Materials and Testing is a certificate in which construction systems are discussed along with material stresses and other engineering concepts. The certificate provides an introduction to materials used in construction as well as techniques used in blueprint reading for building construction. Students learn about construction methods through demonstrations and lab experiments. The main emphasis is on structural steel, masonry, wood, reinforced concrete, and combined structural systems. Students develop understanding of the construction process with different materials. They understand the relevant engineering and mathematical relationships. Plant Operations (asphalt plant, concrete plant) – rate of production vs. rate of installation/construction.
