What is Construction Academies?

Texas A&M Department of Construction Science plans to offer a series of (4) - four-day Construction Academy Careers Programs and (2) – five-day RELLIS Construction Skilled Trades Academies for high school students designed to acquaint students with the study of and potential careers in the construction industry. The Construction Academies will also focus on social, intellectual, and emotional development of rising and admissible youths ages 14-17.
