The mission of the Construction Management Technology Program at Santa Fe College is to promote and improve construction education in our geographic area by providing construction management training for entry-level practitioners in residential and light commercial construction.
Growth in the state of Florida and changes in the construction industry mandate that builders and their supervisory employees have business and management skills, in addition to being knowledgeable in the construction trades and the construction process. Associate in Science degree graduates from the Construction Management Technology Program at Santa Fe College understand basic principles of business and have knowledge of the technical aspects of the construction industry. Graduates will be able to function in the construction office environment and on the job site.
The Construction Management Technology Program at Santa Fe College offers building construction courses for different types of students. The AS in Construction Management Technology gives graduates technical skills required in the industry and blends business management training for light construction in a two-year degree program. The AA degree with construction emphasis is designed to prepare the graduate to transfer to a four-year university and to pursue a bachelor’s degree in building construction. Several courses taught in the AS degree program transfer to four-year institutions as either electives or as required upper division courses with the graduate’s AA degree. Please check degree requirements and transfer courses accepted by the construction programs at upper-level universities.
Many courses in the AS degree program are taught at the entry level and are open to the public and to industry members to update training. Santa Fe College’s AS degree program in Construction Management Technology is accredited by the American Council for Construction Education (ACCE). The ACCE is the accrediting body for two- and four-year construction management programs in the United States. The college’s AS degree program in Construction Management Technology is the only accredited two-year program in Florida and one of only 10 in the country accredited by the ACCE.
