National Career Academy Coalition Certified

The Academy of Urban Construction Management Technology and Urban Planning Architecture prepares students for a career in the homebuilding industry. It is currently the only one of its kind in the county and has been nationally recognized. Students will enroll in one of the construction related programs including: Architectural Drafting and Building Construction Technology .

Mentoring, internship and on-the-job training connect students to the world of careers. The two career paths available are:

Drafting

In the drafting field, students learn how to prepare blueprints and gain training from hands-on instruction that encompasses technical drawings, schematics, and computer-aided design.

Building Construction Technology

The BCT program exposes students to the world of manual construction. Students learn to use advanced building tools and materials that complement architectural needs.

Both builder associations are partners with William H. Turner Technical Arts High School. Their mission is to provide students enrolled in the UCAT academy with skills necessary for graduates to enter the home building industry at the skilled level in carpentry and drafting.

School-to-Work means that when you graduate from Turner Technical Arts High School you have the skills to work as a professional frame carpenter and start your home building career!

Carpentry

The purpose of this program is to prepare students for employment or advanced training in the carpentry industry. The programs in this cluster also provide supplemental training for persons previously or currently employed in the carpentry industry.

This cluster of programs focuses on broad, transferable skills, stresses the understanding of all aspects of the carpentry industry, and demonstrates elements of the industry such as planning, management, finance, technical and production skills, underlying principles of technology, labor issues, community issues, and health, safety, and the environmental issues.
