Roughly 300 high school students took over the College of Technology & Computer Science campus recently to explore concepts in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math). This annual event allows students to participate in hands-onactivities related to the field and learn about careers they can begin with ECU. Several CM professors helped with the Construction Management portion, putting on presentations in BIM, materials, steel rigging/mobilization and crane operation.
The objective of the construction management (CM) program is to provide students with knowledge and skills that are valued by commercial, residential and infrastructure sectors of the construction industry. As construction managers and professionals, our graduates plan, organize and control projects of various types and sizes. Additionally, our graduates enjoy a high placement rate and maintain a reputation of adapting well to industry needs and advancing in their professional careers.
