The Building Sciences Academy uses the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) curriculum to prepare students for careers in the construction industry. Experiencing real-life application, decision-making, and problem solving opportunities through hands on industry experience and project based learning provide Brewtech students advantage over other students pursing post-secondary education in Business Science. Students in the Business Science Academy use computer-assisted design (CAD) software to read blueprints, modify building plans, and create construction designs.

The Building Science Academy's course work covers the following basic principles:

Safety (local, state, and federal safety and environmental regulations)

  • Site layout
  • Concrete forms
  • Residential and commercial framing and finish
  • Project supervision and management
  • Instruction and training are provided in the proper care, maintenance, and use of tools and equipment.

The learning environment at Brewtech requires application of science, mathematics, and communication skills when completing course work. Students in the Building Science Academy must take the following academy courses:

  • Architecture, Construction Manufacturing
  • Carpentry I
  • Carpentry II
  • Carpentry RES Intermediate

Community Involvement:

The Building Science Academy stresses community involvement:

  • Students build dollhouses annually and provide them to Habitat for Humanity.
  • Partnered with Brewtech's Graphics Design Academy for the Skills/USA food drive (Brewtech donated over one thousand pounds of food to the Montgomery Food Bank this year).
