Pioneer Quotes: 

"The feedback I would like to share is that I continue to be impressed with the caliber of graduates we have had come down to work us. They have been doing a remarkable job managing million dollar subcontractor packages and lead the pack in their peer group in terms of performance. Keep up the good work on your side and keep encouraging the strong ones to join the Balfour Beatty family." -Tim Boerschlein, '08, project manger at Balfour Beatty

"Plug and play says it all; the grads we have hired out of this program have the skills, knowledge, and aptitude to quickly fill and excel in key roles of our operation." -Bill Snyder - senior district manager, National Fuel

"I'm absolutely loving the work I am getting to do. Who thought I'd be able to use a CM degree managing and estimating the construction of theme parks in other countries!" -Melissa Vandermark, '12, estimator, ADK Studios.

"This project is truly a modern marvel because it’s the first time something like this has been done, raising a bridge roadway and keeping the bridge open to traffic. It’s a great first project because it covers everything we learned in CM; precast concrete, planning, scheduling, steel, etc." -Zauch Mauch, ’14, civil/steel inspector, Greenman-Penderson Inc.
