Chico State Programs Among Nation's Elite
Construction Management is the largest program of its type in California and the fifth largest in the country, and it is fully accredited by the American Council for Construction Education.
- Nearly 100% of Chico’s construction management graduates are hired after completing the program; they work at many of the largest firms in the country.
- The Associated General Contractors (ASC) student chapter won the 2012 Outstanding Student Chapter Contest for its community service in the tornado-stricken community of Joplin, Mo. This was the fourth year Chico State has been one of the top three student chapters in the nation.
- Chico State is home to one of five Concrete Industry Management (CIM) programs in the country. CIM students have rehabilitated portions of the National Historic Landmark of Alcatraz Island and helped create a 9/11 firefighters memorial.
- At the 2010 ASC Student Competition, Chico State student teams took first place in building information modeling and third in the heavy civil construction and marine construction. In 2011, Chico won third place for Phase II of its “Blitz Build” for the Catalyst Shelter for Victims of Domestic Violence.
- After volunteering to aid victims of Hurricane Katrina and the 2008 Concow Fire, students from the College of Engineering, Computer Science, and Construction Management built two homes in nine days for victims of domestic violence, for their 2010 Annual Winter Community Service Project. In 2011, those homes received the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification.
