CTE Center Students Tour the New CTE Expansion Building

Jan 21, 2015

Professional experiences and tours are always a great chance for students to see their potential careers. The Architecture and Civil Engineering & Architecture class had the chance to visit the expansion of the CTE Center. The expansion was still in the structural fabrication stage (exposed structural steel). 

The main contractor on the project was able to take the students around and show them several very interesting problems the engineers had to overcome. This showed the students that even
professionals make mistakes and learn from them.

The students were also able to connect the structural principles that they learned in both classes to what they were actually seeing in the expansion. The tour was fantastic in several ways, but mainly to show the students how Architects, Engineers, and Contractors were able to work together to solve problems and achieve goals on time.
