About CIM

Receiving tremendous support from the concrete industry, the CIM program was the first of its kind in United States – a four-year Bachelor of Science degree in Concrete Industry Management. The need for such a program was recognized through the RMC 2000 movement in 1994 and was then put into action by the Tennessee concrete industry. The end-result was a partnership between both the concrete industry and Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) to develop the CIM program, implementing it with its first two students in 1996, and producing its first graduates in 2000.

Since its humble beginning, the CIM program has expanded. Now, in addition to MTSU, it is available at California State University, Chico, Texas State University, the New Jersey Institute of Technology, and beginning fall of 2021, South Dakota State University. Today, there are more than 475 students pursuing degrees in Concrete Industry Management. Additionally, hundreds of CIM graduates are now working in the concrete industry.

The goal of CIM

The goal of the program is to produce broadly educated, articulate graduates that are also grounded in basic construction management. The program aims to create students who are knowledgeable of concrete technology and techniques and are able to manage people and systems as well as promote products or services related to the concrete industry. It entails a broad range of courses, from English and history to science and also mathematics. A series of required business courses such as finance, marketing, management and business law are also taken throughout the length of the program.

The concrete-specific courses teach the fundamentals of both concrete and its properties. It also teaches testing, concrete construction and more. All of these courses provide much more than what is simply in the text. They emphasize problem-solving, quality assurance and also customer satisfaction. They utilize both practical case studies and an internship. This ensures the student also obtains real-world experience essential to starting a successful career. Additional opportunities include both on-campus socials and other events providing industry networking and professional development.

The CIM program also continues to provide future leaders for the concrete industry. To learn more about the program, you can also visit www.concretedegree.com.
