Construction & Maintenance

Put your work boots on and learn the nuts and bolts of operating and maintaining systems and facilities. Get a handle on HVAC, electrical construction or facilities management, and build the skills you need to learn a trade that will lead to a well-paying job.

Just like so many things in Texas, the construction and development industry is big. A 2021 report on construction activity shows that the Dallas-Fort Worth area’s building market is still the second-largest in the nation, followed by Houston as the third-largest. And where there’s building and development, there’s a need for expert electricians, HVAC technicians, plumbers, pipefitters and more. You’re in the right place for this career!
