Build Your Path
Build Your Path, the MCCEI built environment career resource guide sponsored by The Baltimore Building Congress & Exchange Foundation, hit the streets in March of 2016. It is a guidebook that promotes different careers in trades, design, management and related professions.
Build Your Path was put together on suggestions from several high schools guidance counselors and outlines pathways for those with college and career ambitions. We emphasize that these pathways are neither linear nor mutually exclusive throughout the publication. A directory of Maryland apprenticeships, community colleges, and four year schools is included as well. The next edition is currently in the works.
Maryland Center for Construction Education & Innovation is an industry-led workforce intermediary established to create a world-class education system for Maryland’s built environment. MCCEI identified three areas of focus to improve Maryland’s construction workforce pipeline: 1). Generating career interest among young talent by changing the image of construction, 2). Aligning education with new technologies and skill sets and articulating programs from high school through university levels, 3). Increasing the supply of bachelor’s degree construction graduates produced in Maryland. For more information about MCCEI visit, www.mccei.org or call us at 410-704-5981.
