The home building and residential development industry in Middle Tennessee is actively involved in the MTSU Construction Management Program. Six of the Nation's Top 10 Builders participate in the program, along with many locally owned and operated companies. The program is also supported by The Rutherford County Home Builders Association (RCHBA) and the Middle Tennessee Home Builders Association (BHAMT). Additional program support comes from the Memphis Area Home Builders Association, The Home Builders Association of Tennessee (BHAT), and most all other homebuilder associations in Tennessee.
|"Being involved in the MTSU program since 1996, I have seen the program grow to the
point that it ranks near the top with the so called "Big Name Construction Schools".
The quality of students and their knowledge basis upon graduation is outstanding.
In hiring new employees we always look to MTSU first due to the fast learning tract
these students have. It's not unusual for a new graduate to be up to full speed and
running their own community within a year or two. Beazer Homes' belief in the program
has led us to monetary contributions to the program as well as a scholarship program
for the students."
President of Beazer Homes, Nashville Division

proud to support MTSU's Residential Construction Management Program. It's exciting
to have the only program of its kind in the nation, right here in middle Tennessee."
Executive Officer, Rutherford County Home Builders Association
|"The MTSU Construction Management Program is an outstanding asset to the residential
development and home building industry in Middle Tennessee. Nowhere else in the country,
does the local home building industry have their pick of top-notch candidates for
employment. To have employees who are specifically educated about our industry is
of incomparable value. The education these students are receiving will enable them
to have an advantage in our industry that previous generations of home builders and
developers did not."

"When I started building homes in 1963, the only training I had was trial & error and observing other builders. If a program like MTSU now offers had been available it would have been a giant leap forward for me. The students we can help in this new program will be better informed and experienced,their chance of success will be enhanced greatly."
