Contractors, architects and interior designers all benefit from earning degrees. Many of these professionals graduate from art school in order to learn the skills and techniques that will eventually help them get hired.

Companies such as AECOM Technology employ building designers, contractors and construction workers for major corporate and government projects. For example, AECOM was recently chosen to design and build urban structures for the town of Davie, Florida. The company received $101 million to manage and carry out the project.

AECOM will design and construct a 6-million-gallon-per-day (MGD) brackish water membrane treatment plant as well as a 3.5-MGD membrane water reclamation facility. The project also includes a new utility office for the town, a series of five raw water wells, two deep injection wells and reuse of the reclaimed water. The project is scheduled for completion in three years.

"We are excited to play a key role in the completion of this water treatment and reuse project, which is vital to area residents and future development," said John M. Dionisio, AECOM president and chief executive officer.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, professionals who work in urban planning, architecture and building design have increased employment opportunities upon earning advanced degrees or certifications.
