Architectural engineers design the structural, mechanical and electrical systems that we depend onto make our buildings safe and healthy. Construction managers use their skills in estimating, scheduling and site management to safely and economically construct these buildings.
Discover: Build and Design
The Discover Build and Design camp will allow for students to spend a week examining Architectural Engineering and Construction Management, Civil Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Engineering. Each day students work on hands on activities for a different academic program with expert faculty. If you are interested in more than one of the academic programs included and want to find the program that is the best fit for you, the Discover Build and Design Camp is the best way to spend a week of your summer.
Civil engineers are responsible for the design, construction and maintenance of the infrastructure necessary to support civilized society. The American Society of Civil Engineers currently estimates that existing infrastructure investment needs in the US total $2.2 trillion. That has led the US Bureau of Labor to project that civil engineering employment will grow at a rate much faster than the national average over the next decade.
Mechanical engineering spans a wide range of applied physics including: 1) thermal sciences and energy, 2) materials science, 3) design of machines & mechanisms and the means to control them. The career path of a mechanical engineer may lead to work in transportation, medical, manufacturing, energy or many other challenging industries.
Industrial Engineers blend technical and managerial knowledge to determine the most effective ways for companies to use resources and improve business performance. IEs manage projects, analyze data, and make changes to processes to reduce cost, increase speed, decrease errors, and much more! IEs work in many types of organizations including manufacturing, health care, logistics, consulting, retail, and entertainment.
