Building Controls Technology

The Pathway

The Building Controls Technology pathway for high school students at the DCSD Legacy campus is geared toward students who desire a possible career in construction, electrical, and building automation trades.

Students will train for exciting hands-on work in a fast-growing career field. Courses cover a wide range of topics including: basic electricity, industrial wiring, control systems, building materials, and construction systems. Topics include electrical installation, conduit and raceways, how to use a multimeter, precision measurement, electrical and mechanical torque, basic hand and power tool safety, and OSHA safety.

Students will gain employable skills and work toward an internship in year 2. Or, students can matriculate into ACC’s certificate-based BCT program where they will further learn to install, repair, and maintain a building's computer-controlled mechanical and electrical systems, including its heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), and energy management systems.



If you missed ORIENTATION NIGHT, you will need to stop by the Legacy Campus to pick up your folder, schedule, and make sure your ACC application is complete. Directions on how to complete the ACC application can be found HERE on the Legacy registration page under "College Credit".  If you have any other questions, please reach out to Erin Williams at [email protected] (Legacy Counselor for Advanced Robotics and Building Controls Technology) or Mike Shallenberger at [email protected] (Pathway Developer for Advanced Robotics and Building Controls Technology).

Applications for the 24-25 school year are now closed
If space is available in a specific pathway we will reopen the application after April 1st, for a 2nd round of application submissions.
