Beginning fall 2022 the Supply Chain & Logistics Technology B.S. Degree Plan reflects a new CIP Code. The new code 52.1301 Management Science is a STEM related field as determined by the U.S. Department of Education’s Classification of Instructional Program (CIP) and approved spring 2022 by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) STEM Designated Degree Program List is a complete list of fields of study that DHS considers to be science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) fields of study for purposes of the 24-month STEM optional practical training extension described at 8 CFR 214.2(f).
Under 8 CFR 214.2(f)(10)(ii)(C)(2), a STEM field of study is one “included in the Department of Education’s Classification of Instructional Programs taxonomy within the two-digit series containing engineering, biological sciences, mathematics, and physical sciences, or a related field."
"STEM/STEM related classification will expand opportunities for our students to apply for scholarship funding, will allow our international students an opportunity upon graduation to apply for a STEM OPT extension for a 24-month period of temporary training that directly relates to their program of study in an approved STEM field, and will provide a competitive advantage for our students when applying for internships and jobs," said Margaret Kidd, Program Director, Supply Chain & Logistics Technology.
The Department of Construction Management offers the following Bachelor of Science degrees:
The Construction Management (CM) program provides the ultimate balance of construction, business, and engineering courses. The program emphasizes the critical skills that are highly sought in today and tomorrow’s job markets. Graduates of the CM program are prepared to enter rewarding professions such as project managers, field operations engineers, construction estimators, and construction planners.
Students may choose between two areas of concentration – the Process and Industrial Track or the Commercial Construction Track.
The four-year program is accredited by The American Council for Construction Education (ACCE).
The Supply Chain and Logistics Technology major offers a broad array of career paths with global opportunities, with a choice of four academic tracks:
- Operations - knowledge for a domestic and international career in sales, marketing and operations.
- Systems Management - a technology oriented focus with a strong analytical approach designed to achieve optimum solutions to complex supply chain/logistics problems.
- Global Logistics - in-depth analysis in international logistics and its role in the supply chain with a focus on maritime attributes and activities.
- Directed Emphasis - designed for community college transfer students whose colleges have an articulation agreement with the University of Houston.
