Radek, what jobs can you get with a Construction Technology Degree? I’m wondering, what can I do with a Construction Technology Degree?

Many who graduate with degrees in construction technology go to work for construction companies. Some even start their own companies, though this usually comes after gaining some experience in the field.

There are many different types of construction companies, and construction technology degree holders find themselves working on residential, commercial, industrial, and public works projects. They could end up building roads, bridges, parking lots, homes, towers, dams, parks, and just about anything else you can think of.

Many construction technology graduates work their way into construction management. Some construction technology degree holders go to work for the government (municipal, county, state) as construction or building inspectors. Those with some field experience will have a better shot at these jobs.

The construction industry is huge, employing more than 10 million people, so the need for skilled workers is there. Workers who are skilled in interpersonal communication and technology will have an edge.
