MANUFACTURING, DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION
Look at all the structures around you – an endless variety of homes, buildings, roads, furniture, etc. Each were created by skilled professionals who designed, planned, managed and worked to bring an idea to life. The tools, equipment and structures themselves require unique skills to maintain safe operations. These professionals work in a variety of settings, such as offices, outdoors, factories and small businesses.
Design and Pre-construction Pathway
Specialists in this pathway turn a concept into a set of plans that guide other construction professionals as they continue the building process. These plans – or blueprints – include not only the layout for the structure, but also include plans for wiring, plumbing, etc.
Employees in construction literally build our future! These are the people who build homes, buildings and schools. Others in this pathway build highways, bridges, tunnels and power plants.
Maintenance and Operations Pathway
Employees with careers keep our future growing as they assemble, install, repair and perform preventive maintenance on equipment and machines. They detect, diagnose and correct minor problems on machinery, keep buildings and structures in good repair and maintain the smooth operation of refineries, power plants, chemical plants and mills.
