Today, there are more than 1,000 graduates of the program and another 500 students currently enrolled. This program is made possible, in large part, by the combined efforts of the national and local concrete industry. The National Steering Committee (NSC) for CIM, in collaboration with local patron groups at all five universities, provides both funding and oversight for the program.




CIM Seeking Donations for Upcoming Auction at 2022

“The proceeds from the 2022 CIM Auction will benefit the CIM National Steering Committee (NSC) and support the current CIM programs at Middle Tennessee State University, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Texas State University, California State University – Chico, South Dakota State University, the Executive MBA program, as well as help fund scholarships,” said Ben Robuck, Chairman of the CIM Auction Committee.



See CIM Students in Action! Monday, January 17 - 2:30 PM

Three students from each Concrete Industry Management Program have been invited to present: California State University – Chico, Middle Tennessee State University, New Jersey Institute of Technology, and Texas State University.

World of Concrete registrants are invited to attend the presentation competition and meet students following the formal program. Each presentation will reflect student’s individual experiences in research activities, internships, or capstone coursework and how lessons learned will impact student’s career in the concrete industry. Past presentation topics included: “What CIM Can Do for
You”; “Concrete Industry Management Program: Internships”; “Research Project: Investigation of Sulfur Concrete Mixes for Mars Infrastructure”.

Judges for the presentations are key industry leaders. The student who is judged to have prepared the best presentation will receive recognition as the 2022 recipient of the Bob Weatherton Award and $2500 scholarship money.

Presentations Highlight CIM Goals
Designed to provide graduates with a broad array of initial career opportunities within the concrete industry, the four-year Bachelor of Science degree in Concrete Industry Management (CIM) provides the concrete industry with future managers and leaders.

CIM is a business-intensive program providing solid management skills specifically for the concrete industry. Students participate in a curriculum that fosters educated, articulate professionals grounded in basic business management able to manage people and systems. Students experience fundamentals of concrete, properties, and testing; concrete construction; and the latest technology and techniques, preparing them to promote products or services related to the concrete industry.

Honoring an Industry Legend
World of Concrete established this student award in honor of “Big Bob” Weatherton. Weatherton, who died in 2016, had been closely associated with the founding of World of Concrete, being named an industry legend in 2015. Weatherton revolutionized the concrete pumping industry by developing the articulating boom arm for concrete pumps, which allowed boom trucks with long reaches to travel easily to jobsites. Weatherton was a catalyst of change supporting concrete, producers, and design professionals – his contributions to the concrete industry serve as a motivating example for all CIM students.
