Is This Program For You?
Successful students have an aptitude for interior design and enjoy the challenge that a complex process offers. They have an ability to think in three dimensions and show interest in how things fit together. They seek gratification in seeing the physical, tangible structure developed from ethereal, two-dimensional paper and have great time management skills.
Habitat for Humanity projects are part of the program curriculum for Environmental Design Technology. The hands-on learning gives students the chance to put theory into action and help the community at the same time.
