Rhode Island Construction Career Days

About RI Construction Career Days

The University of Rhode Island Transportation Center offers programs for high school and middle school students, introducing them to opportunities in the transportation and construction industries. We would like to make these students aware of employment and internship opportunities with municipal Public Works and Engineering departments.

Construction Career Days events are a workforce development tool that introduce high school students to careers in the transportation construction industry and support the pipeline that will provide the professionals of tomorrow.

In partnership with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT), the University of Rhode Island Transportation Center (URITC) has been named the National Construction Career Days Center.
