A solid career choice

A bachelor’s degree in concrete management.  That is what several students at Middle Tennessee State University are pursuing now, according to this article in the Knoxville News Sentinel.

Here is more on the program of study, actually called Concrete Industry Management at MTSU’s site:

In keeping with its reputation for growing with a changing world, Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) is home of the Concrete Industry Management (CIM) program. This Program is a joint initiative between MTSU and leaders from the concrete industry. It provides students the opportunity to enter a field that has an urgent need for professionals with the skills to meet the growing demands of a progressive, changing concrete industry.

The four-year Bachelor of Science degree in Concrete Industry Management is offered by the Engineering Technology & Industrial Studies Department in the College of Basic and Applied Sciences. The goal is to produce graduates who are:
Broadly educated
– Adept at oral and written communication
– Proficient in basic math and science
– Knowledgeable of concrete technology and techniques
– Able to manage people and systems
– Capable of promoting products or services related to the industry

There are even scholarships available for this field of study.  I wonder through what department at MTSU this degree is offered.
