An information session about UTC’s successful new Construction Management program is scheduled for Monday, August 10, 4-6 p.m. in the Benwood Auditorium in the College of Engineering and Computer Science.
“The purpose of this information session is to inform more people about this new Construction Management program, recruit more students into the program, and provide an environment for new or prospective students to network with local construction company representatives and contractors. There is a high market demand for this major, and this session will provide information about job placement and other opportunities,” said Neslihan Alp, Ph.D., P.E., Assistant Dean for Graduate Studies and Research, Department Head of Engineering Management and Construction Management, and UC Foundation Professor in the College of Engineering and Computer Science.
A partnership with the UTC College of Engineering and Computer Science, Chattanooga State Community College, Cleveland State Community College, and Associated General Contractors (AGC) of East Tennessee was formed to establish the new degree program, which began in fall 2008.
The B.S. in Engineering Technology Management (ETM) with the concentration in Construction Management at UTC will provide graduates with the knowledge, skills, abilities, and behaviors that are valued and sought by the construction industry both locally and regionally. The new program also can be taken as a 2+2 degree program with the Chattanooga State and Cleveland State Community Colleges.
“Currently we have more than 50 students in the Construction Management program, so I’m very excited and pleased,” Alp said.
Associated General Contractors (AGC) of East Tennessee, http://www.agcetn.org/, is the major sponsor of this program.
This degree program requires 127 hours. Major and related courses are in the areas of Engineering, Engineering Management, Accounting, Management, English, and Mathematics.
