Programs of Study


Students can earn a Bachelor of Science degree in industrial technology management (ITM) within four different emphasis areas:

Concrete core slabs being off-loaded from a semi-truck flatbed by a crane and putting them into place as wall panel on a new manufacturing building.

Building Construction Management (BCM)

This program of study prepares students for careers as managers, supervisors, estimators, and schedulers in the world of building construction. Many of the ITM/BCM majors also earn minors in business administration and occupational safety, even though it is not required by the department.

Re-bars and other building materials stored on a building site.

Building Construction Safety Management (BCSM)

This area is a blend of building construction and construction safety management techniques. A student earning an ITM/BCSM degree can not only perform the same functions as an ITM/BCM major, but additionally they may operate as safety managers and directors. On a large number of commercial building construction projects, at least one full-time safety manager is required to be on the job site at all times, thus continually generating a need for the additional safety management certification.
