Not sure which field to choose: architecture, construction or engineering? What do they do? Who earns what? How long is the training? We’ve made selecting which field to study easy by posting some general facts about different careers in each field. Just click on a tab below for more information on careers in that field.

Julia Morgan was the first female to graduate Berkeley’s Civil Engineering and she was the first female architect in California. She designed more than 700 buildings in California during a long and prolific career. She is best known for her work as architect and construction manager of Hearst Castle in San Simeon, California.

We hope to inspire girls (and boys) about careers in the construction industry. We invite industry professionals to talk about their career choice at our high school Julia Morgan Clubs. We hold events that allow students to learn about the abundance and depth of careers in construction, engineering and architecture and see the professionalism and technology of our industry.
