Click here to get your degree Fact SheetThe Construction Technology program at Casper College was established to help the state and region meet the demands for skilled craftsmen and tradesmen in the construction industry. Through the years, Casper College has worked closely with the Wyoming Contractors Association and local building and trades organizations to assure opportunities for our graduates.

Our courses are designed to train skilled craftsmen. For that reason, much of our work is on-site and hands-on. We will take you from the ground up in residential construction - from asphalt and concrete to framing and finish work. We will introduce you to drafting and architectural design work, surveying and blueprint reading. We also offer courses in related programs like cabinet making, drafting, welding and machining.Lather Work at Casper College
