Students will be required to choose an area of concentration prior to taking CM 30000. Within the CM 20000 course, all students will be exposed to each of the concentration areas to gain insight before selecting their concentration (though students are permitted to select a concentration area any time prior to CM 30000). Students will receive specialized instruction relating to their concentration within the CM 30000 course. The student’s capstone project in CM 40000 and CM 45000 will then focus on the student’s area of concentration. Students are only allowed to select ONE concentration area. The five concentrations are:
COMMERCIAL CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT
DEMOLITION & RESTORATION MANAGEMENT IN THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT
HEALTHCARE CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT
MECHANICAL & ELECTRICAL CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT
RESIDENTIAL CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT
1. Complete Intercultural Development Inventory (IDI) pre-test and post test.
2. Complete Beliefs, Events, and Values Inventory (BEVI) pre-test and post test.
Construction Work Experience
A minimum of 800 hours of post high school construction work experience is required for graduation with a baccalaureate degree. Summer construction jobs, CM internships, or CM Co-op programs may be used to satisfy this requirement. To document your work hours, go to the CM website and look for Work Experience Form. Once forms have been completed and hours have been verified, students will be allowed to register for CM 39000 or CM 49000 depending on the number of work hours completed. Both CM 39000 and CM 49000 are required.
Students must meet the following requirements to progress in the CM major. Failure to meet these standards will require the student to CODO out of the School of Construction Management. CM majors must earn a grade of “C-” or better in all CM courses and all courses that are a prerequisite to a CM course. The “C-” grade must be earned before enrolling in subsequent courses. CM courses can be repeated only once.
Students that are not allowed to continue with CM courses due to the Progression Policy may make a written appeal to the Head of the School of Construction Management Technology if they believe there are extenuating circumstances that caused them to be dropped from the school.
It is the responsibility of each student to assure that he or she fulfills the necessary pre-requisites and courses to meet graduation requirements. Questions may be directed to a CM advisor.
