Study With Us
Building and Construction Technology offers these study options:
to the Building and Construction Technology program at UMass Amherst.
Building construction is responsible for roughly 7% of the Gross Domestic Product in the United States each year. In many ways, the state of our national economy hinges on the strength of building construction and home improvement industries. Success of these critical industries relies on the leadership provided by a highly sophisticated and skilled work force. Graduates of the Building and Construction Technology program help provide the required leadership and vision through their understanding of this technically competitive field. The study of science, business, and design serve as the base for expertise developed in this program of study.
