College Catalog Fall 2012 - Spring 2013

Carpentry and Building Trades - AOS
and
Carpentry - AAS

The Instructional Program

The Carpentry programs place their emphasis on the hand skills and techniques used in residential construction. These programs have a theoretical side as well, but their primary objective is to educate skilled craftsmen and craftswomen. Students in the Carpentry programs have regular assignments on actual job sites where they learn "on the job."  The programs are designed for employment, as well as for someone who wishes to start their own residential construction, remodeling, or woodworking business.

Delhi offers two associate degrees in this area:

The A.O.S. Carpentry and Building Trades curriculum contains one math course, and is primarily aimed at employment.
The A.A.S. Carpentry curriculum contains liberal arts, math, and science courses, and lends itself to employment and/or transfer.

Career Options

The career opportunities in this field are numerous and diverse. For example, a carpenter, woodworker, or mason can work as an individual contractor and sole proprietor, or can be employed by a large corporation or institution as part of a building maintenance team. Other opportunities exist working for larger construction firms, building subcontractors, or specialized construction businesses. Those specializing in woodworking have other types of opportunities in cabinetmaking and interior finish construction.

Job titles associated with graduates of this program are:

A second option for graduates is to transfer to a four-year program in this field, including Delhi's B.T. in Construction Management. Other transfer options include: Pennsylvania College of Technology in Williamsport, PA (B.S. in Construction Management), and the College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) at Syracuse (B.S. in Wood Products Technology).

A related career option would be to transfer to a school with a Technology Education or a Vocational Education bachelor degree, which would lead to a teaching career at the high school level. In New York State, two schools that offer this degree are SUNY Oswego and SUNY Buffalo.

Admissions Requirements

To be eligible for consideration, an applicant must:

For the A.O.S. degree
