This program gives apprentice and journey-level members of the articulated union building trade apprenticeship programs the opportunity to apply their training and trade-related experience toward an associate in science degree in construction supervision. In addition to the courses in construction supervision, students will complete general education courses and receive nontraditional credit for their work experience and apprenticeship.
This associate in science degree in construction requires a few more general education classes than the related associate in applied science degree. It’s the best choice for transferring to a 4-year college or university for a bachelor’s degree. The associate in science degree is recommended by the:
- International Association of Bridge, Structural, Ornamental
- Reinforcing Iron Workers and the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers.
Either degree is recommended by the:
- United Association of Journeymen and Apprentices of the Plumbing and Pipe Fitting Industry of the United States and Canada
- International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.
All of the classes—both the construction supervision classes and the general education classes—are entirely online. They provide the ultimate in convenience, since you never have to set foot on campus.
This is a high demand, high skill and high wage program as defined by the Michigan Community College Network.
