Concrete Industry Management

Courses & Advising

The Concrete Industry Management program is founded on a strong lower-division base of general education, math, science, and business courses. The upper-division courses allow 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 CIM program curriculum will also have fulfilled all the course requirements for a Minor in Business Administration.

Advising Requirement

Advising is mandatory for all majors during the Spring semester in this degree program. Students must go through advising in order to be eligible to register for Fall classes. Consult your CIM major advisor for specific information. Your advisor, either Feraidon Ataie or Mohammed Albahttiti, is assigned to you and can be found in your student portal.
