HANDS-ON EDUCATION: In our construction lab, you'll learn from professors like Eric Nelson (left) how scaffolding goes up, ways to avoid falls, and how to respond to an injury if one occurs. Nelson, a certified safety professional by the BCSP, has work experience in general industry and consulting.
“The professors do a really good job, part education and part helping you establish yourself in the career field. They really want their students to succeed."
Chris Banyai ('11), Safety Leader, Georgia Pacific
