About Our Program

Do you enjoy problem solving? Are you interested in the built environment?

If so, you may be a great fit for the Architecture/Construction (ACT) program at HFC. Our program is designed to provide you with a foundation in the principles and practice of building construction. By the time you finish, you will have an excellent platform to pursue careers in Architecture, Construction Management, Civil Engineering and more.

In the ACT program you won't just sit in classrooms; you will engage in real-world projects in the labs and in the community. Our curriculum is unique among other similar college programs in that it is project-based, allowing you to gain an understanding of building construction through practical, “hands-on” activities. You will explore all facets of residential and commercial design and construction while working with state-of-the-art, industry-standard software, construction materials and techniques.

Enroll now in the ACT program for a rewarding foundation into the practice and applications of architecture and construction.

Student Testimonials

  • Richy Rodriguez

    Assistant Project Manager for the Detroit office of Homrich

    Certified Journeyman carpenter

    The ACT program was very knowledgeable- not just from an architectural standpoint, but it gives you a base to start with any architecture firm in terms of what’s expected of entry level employees.

    The instructors were great. They were willing to help out and were very knowledgeable about what the industry as a whole demands – from the idea of a building to the finished product of a building
