Overview

This program at California State University Chico, the only one of its kind in California, was created with the financial support of concrete industry executives, who are eager to employ its interns and graduates.

Concrete Industry Management (CIMT) is founded on a strong lower-division base of general education, math, science, and business courses. The upper-division class and laboratory work allows students to develop the necessary technical knowledge in concrete materials and processes. At the same time, courses in logistics and information systems, finance, marketing, law, safety, quality, and project management prepare students to become effective leaders in the concrete industry.

Students who complete the CIMT program curriculum will also have fulfilled all the course requirements for a Minor in Business Administration.

Career Outlook

Concrete products, equipment, and services represent a 130 billion dollar segment of the national economy, with over 2 million employees. This professional degree program addresses an identified need for more than 2,000 new technical managers each year within that wide segment.
