Architecture & Construction
The industry includes landscaping, maintenance, repair and improvements of structures. To offset rising energy costs, some companies opt for new buildings or energy efficient renovations. “Green construction” is increasingly popular and involves making buildings as environmentally friendly as possible by using recyclable and earth-friendly products. Construction offers career opportunities for people with different talents and educational back-grounds. Career opportunities include managers, clerical workers, accountants, engineers, truck drivers, trades workers and construction helpers. This pathway prepares students for careers in designing, planning, managing, building and maintaining built environments. People employed in architecture and construction work on new structures, restorations, additions, alterations and repairs.
