What Some of Our Internal Transfer Students Have to Say About BC
Originally a University Studies major, Austin decided to switch to building construction after his freshman year. He said,
"Seeing a set of 2D plans being transformed into a physical structure, is something I find interesting. Majoring in Building Construction has given me skills that I can directly apply in the real world."
"I first came to Tech as an Environmental Science major trying to find my way into the Engineering program. It wasn't until my friend introduced me to the BC major that I completely switched up what I wanted to do. I walked into this program and saw endless opportunities of networking and employment opportunities. I was immediately infatuated by the experiences of other BC students and knew that with hard work that I too could match them. I'm in my last year of BC undergrad and I do not regret the decision I made."
"I've been introduced to so many different opportunities and made a countless number of long-lasting relationships. I cannot wait to see what my future holds."
Warren transferred into Building Construction after hearing about the program through members of the Corp. "Through the BC program, I learned that engineering was not for me. I wanted a career where I did not have to stay in a cubicle and a career that revolved around making relationships with people. "
"Majoring in Building Construction has already given me more opportunities and growing relationships both in the industry and amongst my peers than I could have ever imagined."
