Career Path for Engineers & Project Managers

Engineers and project managers in our industry come from many sources. Many become project managers after gaining experience in the field as a journeyman or foreman. Others become project managers and engineers through engineering or construction management programs offered at colleges and universities around the country. We are fortunate that Iowa’s three public universities provide engineering and construction management programs. Although the MCAI maintains a close working relationship with Iowa State University’s MCAA Student Chapter, other institutions in Iowa provide an excellent foundation for a career in the mechanical contracting industry as well.
