AGC Houston Student Chapters
AGC Houston reaches out to nurture the future construction industry by encouraging college students in construction-related studies to form AGC Houston Student Chapters. AGC Houston has a long-standing relationship with student chapters, dating back to 1949 when we formed the AGC student chapter at Texas A&M University – one of the first AGC student chapters in the nation!
In 2012, we were proud to welcome the formation of a new student chapter at Prairie View A&M, which was chartered by AGC of America. The charter officially seals the relationship between a university and the AGC. In order to obtain a charter, the school must meet certain criteria, such as accreditation and offer a construction and/or an engineering-related degree program. The charter also allows students to apply for scholarships and participate in industry-related activities, both locally and nationally.
The following universities currently maintain active student chapters:
- Prairie View A&M University
- Sam Houston State University
- Texas A&M University
- Texas Southern University
- University of Houston
Students of these programs often volunteer at AGC Houston industry events such as the annual Barbecue Cook-off, golf tournaments, fund-raisers and the biennial APEX awards.
