Build a better future for yourself and your community in Construction Technology.
Construction tradesmen and women make up the largest group of building-trade workers. They work quickly, accurately, and efficiently to maximize use of time and materials. With a shortage of these qualified professionals in today's job market, graduates of MSC Southeast's Construction Technology program can expect to find many employment opportunities in Southeast Minnesota and beyond.
At MSC Southeast in Winona, our students gain hands-on skills in the construction lab and on-site in a real-world environment. In addition to gaining experience with the tools, materials, methods, and standard practices of the trade, our students learn:
- Planning, designing, estimating, and blueprint reading
- GPS geosystems, solar, and green building
- Building, finishing, and installing custom cabinets
The MSC Southeast Construction Technology program is partnering with Habitat for Humanity and the City of Winona to help develop and build high quality, affordable housing in the community. And when the weather is too rough for outdoor projects, students can work on building a tiny house inside the construction lab!
MSC Southeast's Construction Technology program graduates can look forward to an outstanding job market as the construction industry continues to grow. Nationally, employment of construction trades workers is projected to grow 11% from 2016 to 2026, and a 2017 survey states 4 out of 5 contractors are looking for new hires.
