Letter From the Director
Greetings from the School of Concrete and Construction Management!
Our collection of programs are unique and nationally recognized with a practical approach to education focusing on industry driven initiatives. The presence of local and national companies is a weekly occurrence ensuring your education is current state of the practice. We have strong programs in Commercial Construction Management and Land Development/Residential Building. There is nowhere else in the Southeast that can offer degrees in Concrete Production, Sales and Service and Concrete Contracting. Your first year experience allows an introduction to all four concentrations so you can make the best decision for your career in construction. A blend of general education, business and technical coursework provide a solid introduction into jobs such as Quality Control, Estimating, Technical Sales, Operations, Project Management, Superintendent, Purchasing, Marketing, BIM Specialist, Dispatching and Testing Technician. A required internship/co-op allows every student to experience the industry from the inside before graduation which helps solidify their long term career path. Coupled with industry interaction is hands on laboratories, community work and conferences. We travel extensively in North America and abroad to provide a well-rounded look into an industry that has no bounds. No matter the stage of life you are in if you are looking to be a part of building and repairing the world’s infrastructure then you have found the right University. From writing about it in a trade publication to producing the concrete for the project to standing at the top of a 10-story deck pour as project manager, you can step into various roles in this great industry.
Please contact us if we can be of any help.
