Travel Opportunities

CIM Students have multiple opportunities throughout the year to travel to industry events across the country and network with industry leaders and other CIM Programs.

The Concrete Industry Management is a hands-on technology discipline that prepares students for a wide range of exciting technical and managerial careers in the concrete and related industries. Texas State is one of five universities in the nation to offer this innovative degree program. The CIM Program at Texas State is accredited by The Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering. The goal of this industry-driven program is to produce broadly educated, articulate graduates who are grounded in basic construction management, knowledgeable in concrete technology and techniques, and able to manage people and systems to promote products and services related to the concrete industry.
