Mechanical Contractors are always looking for well-educated, talented young people to fill professional positions in project management and business operations. To find these individuals, they turn to colleges and universities offering academic programs relating to mechanical construction and service. And they turn first to students they’ve met through the Mechanical Contractors Association of America’s Student Chapter Program.
MCA-KC’s two Student Chapters, Pittsburg State University and Kansas State University allow students the opportunity to learn about the industry by attending regular meetings with the Association’s local contractors, taking field trips to a variety of jobsites and facilities, working together on volunteer projects, participating in fundraising projects, and more.
Everyone involved in the Student Chapter program – the students, faculty, contractors, and sponsors – benefits from their investment of time and resources. Students and faculty know that the Association is dedicated to helping students prepare for careers in the mechanical construction industry. When a student joins our chapter, MCA-KC and the university commit to providing that student with every opportunity to develop professional skills, knowledge, and experiences. When students’ formal education is complete, the industry will welcome them into its professional ranks.
