Learn about the construction industry and potential careers while still in high school. Texas A&M’s Construction Academies combine academic instruction with fun social activities.
Through these academies, students learn more about the Department of Construction Science and its programs. Attending an academy is a hands-on way to determine if construction science is the right major and career path. All students who attend Texas A&M University who attended a construction academy will receive a $1,000 scholarship from the Department of Construction Science.
The cost to attend the Construction Academies is paid by the support of our Construction Industry Advisory Council. Because of their support, students are able to attend the academies for free. We ask that if you are selected that you please commit and attend the program.
Texas A&M’s Construction Academies are for incoming 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students. Students who have graduated high school are ineligible to attend.
