History:
The Department of Architecture & Construction Management is the oldest of its kind on Long Island, New York. Our programs have been meeting the needs of the building industry and the design professions in the New York metropolitan region for nearly sixty years. The Building Construction and Highway & Bridge Construction curriculums were originally started in 1946. The first programs to be nationally accredited by TAC - ABET in the Department were the Civil Engineering Technology and Construction - Architectural Engineering Technology in 1965. In the early 1990's, the College was elevated to full four-year status and shortly thereafter the Bachelor of Science in Construction Management program was started. Our newest program is Bachelor of Science in Architectural Technology. As we enter the twenty-first century, the Department has deactivated all of its associate degree programs and is now focusing on professional baccalaureate degree programs. The Department is also looking to the future in planning a number of graduate and post-baccalaureate diploma programs.

Student Internships:
Our 90 hour, 3 credit, internship program offers students the opportunity work for architectural, engineering or construction firms, corporate facilities departments, or local town and village planning and building departments. This experience often leads to part and full time employment as well as building experience on your resume.

Career Opportunities:
