The Architecture • Construction • Engineering (ACE) Academy is designed to provide students with a broad scope of the skills and knowledge necessary to pursue an exciting career in the architecture/construction/engineering fields. Through relevant and challenging courses, the students will receive a solid foundation in the introductory processes and fundamentals related to the professional tracks of the skilled trades industries. Students will be able to explore each discipline and apply credits to the track best suited to their interests for further study.
Each track, Architecture, Construction or Engineering, within the ACE Academy has an introductory course intended to allow the student to explore different career options and the educational and professional path available in those disciplines. Beyond career exploration, each introductory class also covers the terminology, processes, skills and industry-specific content to provide the student with a snapshot of that discipline as well as how all the disciplines in the construction industry work together to build our communities.
In addition, the ACE Academy includes a course in blueprint reading, a skill that is considered a fundamental and required aptitude for all disciplines and individuals in the building industry.
