Careers in architecture and construction are growing in availability nationwide. Many schools are being approved to create relevant bachelor's programs in an effort to keep up with the high employment demand. By increasing the number of degree offerings, academic institutions are helping students advance their education and make them more valuable in their field.

The Florida Board of Education recently approved new bachelor's of science degrees at Seminole State College. Among the programs, students have the opportunity to specialize in architectural engineering technology and construction, the school's website reports.

Those who pursue the architecture engineering technology degree will be equipped with skills needed to plan, design, inspect and build facilities as well as operating systems. Also, enrollees in the construction program will become licensed for several related positions, such as general contractor and construction managers, according to the website.

Both offerings will prepare future degree holders for careers that feature sustainable manufacturing methods and equipment.

In 2008, the average annual salaries of construction managers ranged from $47,000 to $145,920, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
