BCT Fundraising Appeal
The Building and Construction Technology (BCT) program continues to grow and provide educated professional graduates who are tomorrow’s leaders in the field of sustainable design and construction of the built environment. Green building is a rapidly emerging field that will remain an essential piece in the changes that need to occur to combat global warming. Despite the cyclical nature of the construction industry, demand for graduates of the BCT Bachelor of Science degree program remains strong, in both the residential housing and the commercial building sectors. Graduates of the BCT program take on leadership roles with their understanding of this technically complex field.
We rely partially on state-funding, but significantly on student tuition and fees, research grants, and development funds from alumni and industry. Alumni and industry support is critical in meeting the operating needs of the program’s faculty and student’s alike. This funding helps purchase: computing equipment and the latest software for laboratories and student use and updated laboratory equipment. It enables attendance at conferences and trade shows including registration fees and other costs enabling graduate, undergraduate students and faculty to maintain close connections with industry and the latest developments in the field.
