Building Materials Merchandising
Why study building materials merchandising?
State Fair Community College's building materials merchandising program trains students for jobs in the wholesale and retail building materials field. Graduates will earn an Associate of Applied Science degree and find excellent, well-paying job opportunities.
Our students work every day with other professionals--architects, contractors, developers, and building inspectors--to provide materials for a variety of building projects. It's a challenging, established field that requires technical skills in design, drafting, engineering, marketing, and business.
Graduates work as wholesale building materials distributors, in retail companies, with construction companies, and manage lumberyards and home centers across the country.

The college's partnership with the Mid-America Lumbermens Association is another benefit for students, providing advice to help keep our program vibrant and our graduates the best in the business. We've been joined in this cooperative effort since 1972. SFCC's Building Materials Merchandising program is the longest-running program of its type in the United States.
