Grade 15 - Architecture & Construction

Intro to Careers in Architecture and Construction (Credit: 0.50)

Designed to give students an overview of careers in architecture and construction, this introductory Career and Technical Education (CTE) elective is a member of the Architecture and Construction career cluster which provides students in grades 9-12 with a look at designing, planning, managing, building, and maintaining “the built environment,” which encompasses all zones of human activity ranging from natural conservation areas with minimal human intervention to highly dense areas with tall skyscrapers and intricate highway systems. Throughout the semester-long course, students discover that the interrelated components that make up the built environment are as varied and unique as the professionals who help shape it.
