We partnered with the construction industry to:

  1. expand course offerings
  2. increase exposure to the latest in CEM technology
  3. bring more practicing professionals into our classrooms
  4. connect students directly with career opportunities, and 
  5. create opportunities for training and coaching students for construction competitions. 

The Industry Consortium is a collaborative educational and training platform that unites academia, industry, and other stakeholders. This collective synergy harnesses the strengths of each partner, coalescing towards a singular goal—the cultivation of highly competitive human talent that perfectly aligns with the industry's evolving demands. This harmonious alignment ensures graduates possess profiles that seamlessly mesh with industry requisites.

In addition, we have established a collaborative alliance with Plan Academy, an online training company. This strategic partnership is dedicated to equipping our students with an in-depth understanding of project scheduling and adeptness in project controls using the Oracle Primavera P6 software.
