Careers for LEGO® Enthusiasts

LEGO® sets and activities help develop young minds for future artistic, engineering, construction, architectural, and technical careers. Click on the career categories for detailed job descriptions.

Art & Design
Creativity is crucial in all art and design occupations. People in this field must have an eye for color and detail, a sense of balance and proportion, an appreciation for beauty, and a desire to create. They mix knowledge with artistic ability. Designers focus on a specific area of design such as cars or websites. The deciding factor in getting a job in art or design is a good portfolio with examples of your best work.

Architecture & Construction
Architecture and construction comprise one of the largest industries in the United States. There are a wide variety of challenging opportunities in this field. Learners will need a solid foundation in math, science, and technical skills.

Engineering & Technology
Engineers employ mathematical and scientific principles to develop effective solutions to real-world, technical problems. Engineers need to be creative, curious, analytical, and detail-oriented. Communication skills are important because engineers often work with people in a wide range of fields. They should be able to work as part of a team. A bachelor’s degree in engineering is needed for most entry-level engineering jobs. Getting into engineering school requires a strong report card in math and science.

Mathematics & Computers
There is very little that can’t be done with a good foundation in mathematics, particularly when it is combined with a strong liberal arts or computer background. Similarly, many computer students combine study in computer science with mathematics, science, business administration or economics. With this broad background, students have virtually unlimited opportunities.

Other
If you like setting up and organizing things but are not particularly scientific or design-minded, or if you are more service-oriented and like to help people, you may want to consider one of these careers.
