New courses. New options. LSC-North Harris has added two new programs for educational and career advancement.
The construction supervision associate of applied science degree program prepares graduates for entry-level careers as construction supervisors. This degree combines both the business and technical aspects of this field. Courses within the program include Business Principles, Principles of Management, Information and Project Management, Problem Solving and Decision Making, Construction Methods and Materials, Basic Construction Safety, Construction Management, Construction Estimating, Residential and Light Commercial Blueprint Reading and general academic courses. This program is ideal for a craftsman working to move up into a superintendent or supervisor position in a large construction firm or subcontractor.
If you are fascinated with electricity, then you might want to look at a career in electrical technology. Electricians enjoy one of the higher-paid specialty industry fields with a solid future as America becomes more dependent on consistent and well-maintained supplies of electricity. Some electricians become electrical inspectors, enter teaching programs, or work as construction consultants, while a few enter training programs to become contractors. Electricians are also finding that their profession is now connected with those who do computer and telecommunications wiring. More than 15 percent of electricians take additional classes on telecommunications systems, wiring and electrical interfaces.
The courses complement on-the-job training and mirror real world situations by providing classroom studies with hands-on applications in high-tech laboratories. The program also works with local electrician providers/companies to ensure that the class focus meets their needs and on preparing the student to pass the Texas State Licensing exam.
