Construction

Construction is a great career path with limitless possibilities! A four-year degree is not required to become a craft professional and advance professionally in the field. Through apprenticeship, work-based learning and continuing education programs, construction workers can earn while they learn and continually hone their skills. But students who want a college experience also will find plentiful jobs in construction as the industry continues to thrive.

Today’s young people who choose to enter construction professions will not only be constructing bridges better designed to weather natural disasters, building energy-efficient manufacturing facilities and renovating historical buildings, but also contributing to a safer, stronger and more secure America.

Development

Developers can be individuals, small partnerships, or large companies. Some operate in a single market, such as Houston or Atlanta, while others focus on a larger region, such as the northeastern United States, or even on the entire country. A few U.S. developers operate globally. Some developers maintain a small staff and outsource many development functions, while others employ a large number of professionals and perform most development functions in-house. Developers engage in either for-sale residential development or commercial development, which includes income-producing rental apartments.
