Applied science, is a way to major in the “The Skilled Trades”. Skilled labor is in high in demand nationally. Long gone are the images of poor “blue collar” workers with dirty faces, and small paychecks. In the 21 st century, the image should be more like an Electrician, Plumber, or HVAC contractor with a small fleet of vans and employees who has become very successful and wealthy.
Why is this Important?
- Professional Associations are where the industry of the major gather together
- Many have student chapters you can join while in college
- Many offer internships, scholarships, and opportunities in the major
