Other recent implementation for improvement of the program academic quality

The faculty of the Construction Engineering Management program and the Industrial Advisory & Development Council reviewed the existing curriculum of the CEM program and made some changes in order to satisfy the ACCE requirements. After lengthy discussions between the COE/CECEM Department and the College of Business Administration, the CEM Program included the following additional courses as part of the curriculum beginning catalog year 2011-2012:

    • MGMT 413 or (HRM 361) - Quality Management for Productivity or (The Human Resource Function) - 3 units

    • BLAW 220 or (BLAW 320) Business Laws or (Legal & Reg. Environment of Business) - 3 units

    • CBA 300 International Business - 3 units

These courses complete the 18 unit requirements for Business and Management. The other 9 units that are already part of the program requirements include: ECON 300 (3 units), ACCT 201 (3 units) and MGMT 300 (3 units).
