Every year, students in the construction management departments get to flex their knowledge, skills, and abilities in competitions based on actual construction projects. Students take the skills they learned in the classroom to new heights as they plan and prepare these projects. The competitions acknowledge the efforts of students who strive to become emerging leaders in the construction industry. The competitions typically involve construction companies in sponsoring, recruiting, judging, and coaching students. The events have become an important way for students to showcase themselves and earn a job in construction management. Seeing what their world could look like after college is inspiring our students to study hard and compete even harder! The competitions range from a focus on heavy civil construction, building construction, residential construction, and more. The events occur in Nevada, Florida, Texas, and other locations throughout the United States.
Hear from some of the students who have attended the competitions:
"Our program is small, but we can compete with the best. We have nothing to lose and everything to prove”
- Agustin Hernandez Espinoza
"It is a taste of the real world. Just in 10x speed."
- Jaqueline Molina
