Construction Industry Advisory Council (CIAC)

The Department of Construction Management created a local Construction Industry Advisory Council (CIAC) in 1991 to maintain an active and continuing relationship with the industry. CIAC serves as a bridge between the construction industry and the University in order to create interdependent relationships with a shared goal of serving the construction and related industries.

The Department of Construction Management enjoys tremendous support of the local construction industry, which provides part-time employment opportunities to students during the school year; internship opportunities during the summer; opportunities for field trips; part-time and guest lecturers, and financial support. The Council consists of a group of professionals who represent all facets of the construction industry.
