Career Tech Education Students to Visit VTSU Randolph March 26

Vermont State University will welcome students from Vermont’s Career and Technical Education centers to the Randolph campus on Tuesday, March 26, for an event designed to introduce them to different tracks to entering the building industry. 

Between 150-200 students are expected to attend the third-annual event sponsored and organized by the Vermont Retail Lumber Dealers Association (VRLDA). Vermont State’s Architectural Engineering Technology program helps to facilitate the day’s activities.  

At the event, students will learn about the VTSU degree programs that prepare students for this in-demand field, and VRLDA will highlight career opportunities students can enter right after high school. 

“The buildings industry needs employees, both in the professions (including designers and construction managers) and in the trades (including builders),” said Scott Sabol, P.E., Professor of Architectural Engineering Technology. “This event offers the Vermont Retail Lumber Dealers Association and VTSU the opportunity to share information with students about immediate workforce options available to them, and the professional, degree-based careers that can be pursued in Vermont in this field.” 

A series of rotating information sessions will be held, including equipment demos, career mentoring sessions, exploration of the VTSU Randolph Construction Management Lab, and opportunities to talk with VTSU Admissions counselors. Campus tours will also be available.
