Welcome to the Applied Construction Technology program at the WMCTC:
In the Applied Construction Technology program students will perform most of the processes required to build a home. This will include concrete, building walls, floors and roof systems, shingling, insulating, dry-walling, siding, window and door installation, trim and cabinetry work, and ceramic tile. Students will also be involved in the mechanical systems of the home including plumbing, heating and electrical. Those entering the program will learn areas of construction consistent with the building stage of the on-going project. Students who are in the program for two years will likely have the opportunity to be exposed to all areas of residential construction.
The Applied Construction Technology Field:
Within in the next ten years, the construction field is going to have one of the highest job growth rates out of all industries. The workforce is aging and we need young workers to fill positions in all trades. Local contractors in the Cadillac and surrounding areas contact us repeatedly and ask to hire our students. The Applied Construction Technology program exposes students to many different career paths within the construction field.
