Undergraduate Program in Building Construction Technology

UMass Amherst


Educating leaders in the field of sustainable design and construction of the built environment is the core mission of the Building and Construction Technology (BCT) program. 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.

Students participate in coursework covering science, technology, business, and design to support the basis for advancing their careers. The design, construction, and in-service use of residential and commercial buildings are complex and BCT students are offered a wide array of instruction to cover the necessary elements.

To enroll in the BCT Bachelor of Science degree program, simply follow the regular UMass admissions process.
