Engineering faculty and professionals will offer information about the successful new UTC Construction Management Program in a session on Friday, August 13, 4-6 p.m., Benwood Auditorium, Engineering, Math and Computer Science Building at the corner of Vine and Palmetto Streets.
“This session will provide an environment where either new or prospective students can network with local construction company representatives and contractors to see the high market demand for this major and learn more 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.
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.
A partnership including the UTC College of Engineering and Computer Science, Chattanooga State Community College, Cleveland State Community College, and Associated General Contractors (AGC) of East Tennessee established the new degree program in fall 2008.
Students from Chattanooga State and Cleveland State community colleges may earn this degree by taking a 2+2 degree program, completing the last two years of coursework at UTC. The program requires 127 hours.
“Currently we have more than 50 students in the Construction Management program,” Alp said.
Associated General Contractors (AGC) of East Tennessee, http://www.agcetn.org/, is the major sponsor of the Construction Management program.
Major and related courses are in the areas of Engineering, Engineering Management, Accounting, Management, English, and Mathematics.
