The Carpentry program is designed to help students develop the knowledge, attitudes, and skills required of carpenters engaged in general construction.

First-year students develop skills in:
  - Safety
 - Material selection
- Tool use
- Construction techniques

These students demonstrate their skills through construction of a variety of projects. By the end of the senior year, students will have been exposed to many phases of general construction.
