Construction Management Technology (CMTC)


CMTC 235. CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS AND TECHNIQUES. 5 Credits.

Pre-requisites: METC 102 or TECH 102, or two years of high school drafting or equivalent.
This course introduces various materials and techniques used in construction. Students gain an understanding of the fundamental principles of structural, physical and long-term performance of some of these materials through lecture and lab experiments. Students also gain an understanding of some of the mechanical and non-mechanical properties of various materials, common construction methods and knowledge of material properties and applications in construction.

CMTC 305. CONSTRUCTION ESTIMATING. 4 Credits.

Pre-requisites: CMTC 235.
This course provides students with the ability to estimate construction costs by reading and interpreting technical drawings. Primary focus is on calculating materials, labor and equipment cost for both residential and commercial building projects. Students generate quantity takeoffs for specific building projects.

CMTC 320. NON-METALLIC PROCESSES. 5 Credits.

Pre-requisites: METC 110; junior/senior status or permission of instructor.
Survey of non-metallic materials (such as woods, plastics, and ceramics) and the industrial processes utilized to convert raw materials into finished products. Course includes characteristics and properties of non-metallic materials and utilization of industrial tools and processing equipment.

CMTC 335. ARCHITECTURE. 4 Credits.

Pre-requisites: METC 110 or TECH 110.
Design, layout, and development of residential dwellings and large structures. (4 hour lecture per week)

CMTC 345. SOILS/SURVEYING. 4 Credits.

Pre-requisites: CMTC 335.
This course introduces soil mechanics and site surveying. Through lecture and field work the course examines characteristics and compositions of soil, soil classification systems and the strength of soil masses. Students practice fundamentals of construction surveying, including taping, leveling, angular measurement, traversing, topographic surveying, building layout and grade staking.

CMTC 354. BUILDING CODES. 4 Credits.

Pre-requisites: CMTC 335.
Building Codes is a comprehensive course pertaining to International Building Codes (IBC). Emphasis is placed on code requirements for both commercial and residential applications to include structural, mechanical, plumbing, fire, fuel gas and private sewage code requirements.

CMTC 490. SENIOR CAPSTONE: PRODUCTION LAB. 4 Credits.

Cross-listed: APTC 490, TECH 490, DNTC 490, MNTC 490.
Pre-requisites: senior standing.
Satisfies: senior capstone university graduation requirement.
The course simulates the real world situation that many of the graduates from the department will face. The students will work in teams to apply techniques of production management, product design/development, plant layout, scheduling, cost accounting, assembly, inspection and quality control to produce a product. The course will simulate a real world design team concept by utilizing a design group that contains members of different program majors. The team, to accomplish its goals, is required to draw on each other's unique skills learned in stated goal. In industry often a design team is formed to develop a new product. The team is made up of members from different departments in the company. Learning to deal with the team dynamics while learning to take advantage of the synergy that can be gained by a diverse team is a valuable learning process for our business as well as civic life. Each student team is to produce a new product (to be massed produced and demonstrated by producing a minimum quantity of 25 units built with unskilled labor utilizing jigs, fixtures and/or CNC controlled machines) and create a final written report to demonstrate how the process and goals of the course have been realized.
