REPORTING: RABBIT ZIELKE
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga has been offering a BS degree in Construction Management for 2 years now. This is the third year for the BS degree and the first year an MS is being offered in this emerging field. Construction Management combines the technical elements of civil engineering, architecture, and design with management skills. The Construction Manager works with companies to oversee the entire process of a construction project. The work includes scheduling, selecting contractors, budgeting and managing projects. The construction manager is expected to have a working knowledge of the technology and engineering involved in building construction as well as project management skills. The Construction Management Degrees offered at UTC prepare students for challenging positions in this emerging profession.
On Friday, August 13th at 4:00 pm prospective students and their families are invited to attend an information session in the Benwood Auditorium on the campus of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Free parking is provided for this presentation and panel discussion opportunity. There will be a reception following with the opportunity to network with construction professionals. Representatives from the Associated General Contractors of Tennessee will be joined by Chattanooga State Community College and local construction companies to provide insight into the need for construction management professionals.
