Baton Rouge, LA- Baton Rouge Community College's Construction Management Program was granted accreditation by the Board of Trustees of the American Council for Construction Education (ACCE) for a five-year period through July 2021.
The ACCE ensures that construction programs meet and maintain stringent standards
through a visiting team of its peers and industry practitioners that guarantee that
the program is worthy of accreditation.
"We are delighted to receive the prestigious accreditation from the American Council for Construction Education," said Todd Dozier, Dean for Business, Social Sciences and History at BRCC. "Receiving this accreditation is a confirmation of the commitment and dedication of our construction management faculty to maintaining the highest quality and standards for our student as they prepare them to compete for high-demand jobs in this industry."
BRCC's Construction Management Program was introduced in 2009 with 40 students and enrollment has steadily increased to more than 250 students. The program consists of 60 credit hours and is designed to identify and meet industry workforce needs through an innovative and dynamic curriculum that includes construction classes in materials and methods, print reading, estimating, planning and scheduling, project management and safety.
The American Council for Construction Education was established in 1974 to be a leading global advocate of quality construction education, and to promote, support, and accredit quality construction education programs around the world. ACCE is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation as the accrediting agency for four-year baccalaureate degree programs in Construction, Construction Science, Construction Management and Construction Technology, and the accrediting agency for two-year associate degree programs of a similar nature.
