The UTC College of Engineering and Computer Science dedicated its new AGC of East Tennessee Construction Lab on Thursday.
Built with a $150,000 donation from the Associated General Contractors of East Tennessee, the lab provides materials for undergraduate and graduate students in the Construction Management degree program.
The undergraduate program, which began in 2007, was the first four-year undergraduate degree in construction management offered in Tennessee. In 2010, the program was extended to graduate students.
AGC of East Tennessee and other local construction firms helped supply the lab with new software programs, including ArchiCAD Building Information Modeling software which is worth $425,000.
