B.S. Concrete Industry Management

The CIM program at NJIT is one of only four such programs in the nation developed in partnership with the concrete industry. The curriculum emphasizes problem-solving, quality assurance and customer satisfaction, while providing students with a broad technological and business education.


The objective of the Concrete Industry Management program is to produce graduates grounded in the basics of concrete’s production techniques and its use in a multitude of construction applications. In addition, graduates acquire a minor in business administration.

Graduates will qualify for mid-level supervisory and management positions in a variety of concrete-related companies. The pay is comparable to other high-tech industries. Examples of career opportunities include:

  • Production Management in ready-mixed concrete plants, concrete pipe plants, concrete block plants, precast/pre-stressed concrete plants, quarry operations.
  • Sales and Marketing in concrete and concrete products, cement and admixtures, and equipment.
  • Product Distribution as an inventory control manager or a cement terminal manager.


  • An ability to select and apply the knowledge, techniques, skills and modern tools of their disciplines to broadly defined engineering technology activities.
  • An ability to select and apply a knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering and technology to engineering technology problems that require the application of principles and applied procedures or methodologies.
  • An ability to design systems, components or processes for broadly defined engineering technology problems appropriate to program educational objectives.
  • An ability to identify, analyze and solve broadly defined engineering technology problems.
  • An ability to communicate effectively regarding broadly defined engineering technology activities.
  • An ability to apply written, oral and graphical communication in both technical and nontechnical environments; and an ability to identify and use appropriate technical literature.
  • A commitment to quality, timeliness and continuous improvement.
  • Producing and utilizing design, construction and operations documents.
  • Selecting appropriate construction materials and practices.
  • Applying basic technical concepts to the solution of construction problems involving construction scheduling and management and construction safety.
