The Concrete Industry Management (CIM) program — a business intensive program that awards students with a four-year Bachelor of Science degree in Concrete Industry Management — is actively seeking 2009 summer internships for undergraduates and graduates of the CIM program.

“Through the CIM Internship program, the students gain hands-on experience and exposure, while learning more about the concrete industry,” said Brian Gallagher, chair of the CIM marketing committee. “Key to this experience is internships. Not only do the students benefit from the experience, but the industry benefits from the success of this program.”

Recognizing the need for people with enhanced technical, communication and management skills, the CIM program was developed in 1996. The business-intensive program provides solid management skills developed specifically for the concrete industry. The program gives students many advantages including entering the concrete work force with exposure to the industry early in their careers, unlike others coming in with generic business degrees. The program entails a broad range of courses, from English and history to science and mathematics. A series of required business courses such as finance, marketing, management and business law also are taken throughout the length of the program.

The concrete-specific courses teach the fundamentals of concrete, properties and 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 customer satisfaction, according to CIM.

CIM currently has programs in-place at five universities including Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU), Arizona State University, the New Jersey Institute of Technology, California State University, Chico, and Texas State University. Although currently supporting nearly 300 students, the concrete industry could easily support more than 500 CIM graduates per year.
