Digital School has over 30 years of experience in preparing professionals for careers across rapidly expanding industries. The Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry is on the road to further growth as it emerges from some of the challenges faced during the start of the pandemic. With this in mind, it’s a sector to explore in the upcoming years. 

With a supportive virtual classroom experience and a flexible environment, students can complete an accelerated path to their desired industry. Our instructors offer unique and valuable insight into each industry through their extensive experiences and are able to deliver hands-on experiences to prepare students for a cutting-edge field.

1. Increase in Digital Communications

The AEC industry’s reliance on digital communication has never been greater. The pandemic created even more reason to bring new concepts and strategies to the digital realm as in-person contact became limited. Digital School courses are taught asynchronously, not only giving students the flexibility to complete their coursework on their own schedule, but also helping them develop essential digital communication skills that they can take into the modern workplace.

Digital communication methods have become the foundation of the industry and will continue to be the standard in the coming years. At Digital School, we understand that the industry is always changing and becoming increasingly reliant on technology. Our online technical school allows students to enter the workforce prepared to utilize relevant digital technology, having gained extensive hands-on experience with industry-standard software.

2. Updates in Professional Software Used For Engineering Programs Online

At Digital School, we know that students need to be able to seamlessly turn a simple idea into a complex design. Our engineering programs online allow students to imagine, create, and design using professional software. Additionally, a Global eTraining Subscription is included with tuition, giving students the ability to explore advanced techniques in BIM Management, Autodesk Software, and many other topics to promote career advancement in the field of technical design.

Digital School’s partnership with Global eTraining – and their large Subject Matter Expert (SME) network of course developers – means that our course content is consistently updated to include the latest software and design techniques in the industry. Every day professionals in the AEC industry upgrade their software to reflect today’s highly digitized needs, and students at Digital School will learn to be able to create anywhere, anytime, as if they were on the job in the real world.

3. Demand for Skilled Labor is High

In the post-pandemic world, the AEC industry has shown significant recovery trends, indicating growth in the coming years. With the advancements in technology and the emergence of increased interest in personal and commercial design, the AEC remains a pivotal industry in Canada. 

The demand for skilled labor is also high, as companies across different industries pick up the pace and begin pursuing large-scale projects once again. After architectural software training at Digital School, you will be ready to enter the workforce with confidence. 

After earning a diploma or certificate with Digital School, students have access to many resources to assist them in the job search process, creating a community of supportive contacts. Digital School offers a high level of job placement assistance to students, with resume support, interview support, industry network events, as well as access to an extensive alumni network.
