The Construction Management major is a broad-based program designed to prepare students for positions in the expanding industrial technical fields of the construction industry. Corporate and private construction industries seek graduates to fill job positions in middle management. Students may select from three concentrations: Land Development/Residential Building Construction Management, Electrical Construction Management, and Commercial Construction Management. The merging of a strong technical background with the ability to lead personnel and manage systems produces a graduate who is invaluable to the construction industry.

Electrical Construction Management


The Electrical Construction Management concentration is a result of the collective efforts of the National Joint Apprenticeship Training Committee (NJATC), the National Electrical Contractors Association, the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Pellissippi State Community College, and Middle Tennessee State University to establish this program nationwide. Typically, students transfer to MTSU to complete 30 hours of distance learning and receive advanced credit to finish their degrees. It is possible for a student who is a nonlicensed electrical worker to begin the program as a freshman in the sequence below. For the nonlicensed student, arrangements can be made to work through NJATC for an apprenticeship. An interview with an NJATC educational director and availability of space will be deciding factors as to when a student can start training. A four-year degree in this concentration will provide a strong background in technical and management skills to help graduates obtain middle management positions in the electrical construction management field.
