Program Overview

The Construction Management Technology program (CMT) is designed to develop a capable and knowledgeable workforce, and to prepare interested participants for job opportunities in the field of construction. The program focus is on practical aspects of the technology, offering a flexible pathway for students' success, combining the technology transfer measures with practical industrial experience, with emphasis on successful operation of project management, and Green Building Technology implementation.

The UMES-CMT Program at USG offers a Bachelor of Science degree in Construction Management Technology, and is accredited by the American Council for Construction Education (ACCE). Students can take basic qualifying courses at neighboring community colleges, or universities and have their courses transferred to CMT program to be complemented with core construction and management courses being offered at USG campus. CMT enjoys the support of an Industry-Academia Advisory Board in developing the most suitable training program to accommodate today's industry requirements. All CMT students are required to have a minimum of two summer internship sessions to satisfy their practical experience in the field of construction and they must also maintain a minimum GPA of 2.0 in the program.

It is recommended to have at least 56 qualifying credits prior to transferring in to the CMT program, and a maximum of 70 community college credits would be allowed. The remaining credits need to be taken while in the CMT program at USG. A minimum GPA of 2.0 is needed to be considered for transfer credits, with a minimum grade of "C" for each course.
