Alternatives to Get Degree

The Electrical Construction Management Program at MTSU is the only four year degree program that combines electricity and electronics with land development/residential construction in the country according to outside sources. It is unique in that it provides different formats to get the degree. Some students complete a four or five year Electrical Apprenticeship program though NJATC and complete the entire remainder of the program online.. Some students do not complete the apprenticeship program and take a combination of online and on ground courses through MTSU. The different formats are described below:

NJATC (students who have been involved with the unionized National Joint Apprenticeship
Training Committee) Apprenticeship Options:

  • 4 or 5 year NJATC apprenticeship + remaining classes online and/or on campus at MTSU.
  • 4 or 5 year NJATC apprenticeship + 2 years of classes through Pellissippi State Technical Community College (PSTCC) (either online or on campus at PSTCC) + 11 classes online or on campus at MTSU. This format would allow you to complete the entire program online.
  • 4 or 5 year NJATC apprenticeship + 2 years of classes through your local college or university + 11 classes online or on campus at MTSU.

MTSU Options:

  • All classes completed through MTSU. Some classes must be taken online while others must be taken on campus at MTSU.
  • Take 2 years of classes through PSTCC or other local college or university either online or on campus + 2 years of classes completed through MTSU. Some MTSU classes must be taken online while others must be taken on campus at MTSU.

Note: It is important that you contact the CMT Office to discuss your options for completing the program.

Course requirements are the same regardless of which alternative route you pick to complete the degree.
